About four years later, in the winter of 1944-45, the camp and plant were bombed and the inhabitants were forced to walk about 900 miles to a location near Leipzig. In January 1945, they were settled in a barn. In May, American troops arrived and she was nursed back to health by their medical personnel. She was employed as a housekeeper/cook by various Army units and families.
In 1947 she met her future husband, Eugene Young, in Heidelberg. On June 1, 1948, they were married in Stuttgart. In November they returned to his home in Pocomoke City, Md. In 1951 she received her American citizenship while her husband served in Korea. She became a member of First Baptist Church and attended Sunday school there. In 1959 the family moved to Dahlgren. She became a member of Oakland Baptist Church and Sunday school, serving many years in the nursery department. She was a cafeteria cook at NSWC and later at Potomac Elementary School. Concurrently with those positions she provided cook and seamstress services to the local community, which she continued after retirement.
Veronika was preceded in death by a son, Eugene F. Young Jr.
