    My wife of 49 years was a Donut Dolly in Nam in 1970. I couldn’t be prouder of her service.

    These young ladies were a bright light in a sometimes very dark place. They came there because they cared about the troops in a time when the troops were hated and spit upon. These ladies faced dangers as many others faced but still kept going and with high sprits… I never saw one that had a sad face on, they hid their fear and despair very well. My respects go out to each and every one of them. Yes, they were not nurses to fix wounds, they were angels that fixed the souls of many and gave them hope.

    Thank you for sharing. I was with the 35th SPS, Panther Flt., Phan Rang ’66-67. The Donut Dollies there were great. It would have been nice to meet you

    You seem to have had more than your share of ‘memorable’ experiences. Well done and welcome home. Some of my best friends were SRAO and still are!

  8. Paula,

    Words can not adequately express your traumatic experiences in Vietnam. I feel your pain in the words you write.

    Please see the story I wrote of a DD who suffers mental anguish like you each and every day. Her name is Susan Bradshaw McLean. She asked me to write her memoirs as a healing process. Please let me know if you need to talk to someone who was there.
