Didlake traveled around the world and was decorated for her service. Her decorations include the Women's Army Corps Service Medal, American Campaign Medal, and World War II Victory Medal.

After the war, she joined the NAACP and later marched alongside Martin Luther King Jr. in Detroit.

Wow, awesome lady. :-bd
