    As a combat reconnaissance scout I was in the field almost every day. When we did stand down it was usually in a fire base or a few times at places like Tay Ning, Dau Tieng or Cu Chi. When the Donut Dollies came to see us it was like being home for an hour or so. They were so wonderful. If I met one today I would get down on my knee to thank them. They were so special. Thank you Dollies.

    Although our lives most likely never passed, I hope you know the impact you ladies had on us. I was in Cam Rahn Bay & Tuy Hoa, ’68-69. You ladies came out to my plane and visit with refreshments and it felt like “home” for an hour or so. I will never forget you as long as I live. Thank you and welcome home.

      Hi Dennis

      Your comments mean so much to me. I flew weekly to Tuy Hoa from our home base newly opened at Phan Rang.

      And I have never forgotten all of you. I have a 76th birthday tomorrow & you’ve all been with me every single day of those 76 years since being in Nam.

    I was in Dong Ba Thin in 1967-68, and remember the ARC Rec Center there. The interviews in Donut Dollie Detail are very interesting.. I have a couple of questions:
    (1) What is the story behind the matching red dresses worn by Linda Meinders Webb and the other DDs in her photos? Were they part of a singing group?
    (2) In the interview of Barbara McDaniel Stephens, she includes a photo of herself and an African-American DD. How many DDs of color served in Vietnam? Are you going to be doing interviews of any of them? I wonder if their experiences in-country were different from their white peers.

      Hello Bill. Very perceptive questions. I served with a black donut Dollie in Korea but don’t remember any while I was in Nam. But I’m sure there were. I am guessing here obviously as a white woman but I would think their experience was different as a black woman than mine.

      Thank you for your service. I know it wasn’t easy for you. Happy 2018!

    Hi Sheila,

    God bless you and all the Donut Dollies for the comfort you women gave our troops in Vietnam. I myself am a Vietnam veteran. I was with the USAF. I live in New Jersey and was wondering if you or any other Dollies know of any former Vietnam Donut Dollies living in my area. I would like to include someone local on a Vietnam veteran project I’m planning here in New Jersey for this October. Thank you for your service, and “Welcome Home”!

      Hi Alan

      Thanks so much for your kind words. And welcome home to you! I don’t know of any DD’s in New Jersey area myself m. But you might try the local AMERICAN Red Cross chapter where you are m. I’ll bet they can find out for you if there are any of us in your area.

      Take care and love hearing from you. I love you guys. You’re the best.
