Another individual who gave those extra hours of community service during World War II was Nelrose Nowotny Leissner.  During that time Nell served as chairman of the Comal County Chapter of the American Red Cross.

Years later when asked about heading such a dynamic group during a demanding war time, Nell responded she was blessed to work with outstanding people.  Also, she noted that our community was most cooperative and the attitude was, “What can I do to help?”
