Now we come to the special video bonus… after our win last September for Best Documentary Feature at the GI Film Festival San Diego, we were asked to screen our film as part of this year’s virtual showcase. As a special feature, we were honored to have Southern California Donut Dollies Sharon VanderVen Cummings (Vietnam ’66-’67) and Sandi Rhoten (Vietnam ’69-’70) join Jess Hill (producer) and Jim Gardner (co-producer) and moderator John Decker of KPBS for a nearly half hour long Q&A session. We hope you enjoy watching this conversation and learning about the experiences of these two Donut Dollies in their own words. You can view it at – www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aihrd0zkivU
