She completed her basic training at Fort McClellan in Alabama. Nine days after graduating, she was sent to Fort Sam Houston for medical specialist training. She was then sent to Fort Bragg, North Carolina. While at Fort Bragg, she put in a relocation request and was later sent to work at the 97th General Hospital in Frankfurt, Germany. While working in the hospital, Dora Atha met her husband Byron Atha, who at the time was a bus driver for the "flying squad" (a medic traveling on the bus to accompany female patients from Rhein-Main Air Force Base to the 97th General Hopsital). They had a wedding ceremony first in Switzerland first and then another ceremony in Germany while her brother Earl DeHart (her only sibling to join the military) was stationed in Germany on temporary duty.
