ANGELS IN VIETNAM ~ WOMEN WHO SERVED
Cry, laugh, and share women’s Vietnam War experiences in their own words in this collection of stories, poems, and pictures of the Women Who Served. Over 11,000 women from America, New Zealand, and Australia went to Vietnam as nurses, American Red Cross workers, physical therapists, entertainers, librarians, and more. Ride along in a helicopter on a Christmas Day mission of the heart with Army pilots and American Red Cross Donut Dollies, in Vietnam, 1969. Meet Gary’s angel, a physical therapist who a wounded soldier found over three decades later to tell her, “thank you.”
Take a trip back to the war with a woman when she finds her true love, a soldier fighting in Nam. Experience the war through a nurse’s eyes. Learn where the veterans are today. Read about the Australians and New Zealanders who served in Vietnam. Find out why male Vietnam veterans think the women who nursed, comforted, entertained, or just talked with them were Angels in Vietnam. Forward by David Hackworth, author of About Face and Steel My Soldiers’ Hearts.
