Starting Friday, March 3rd, we’ll be spotlighting one Red Cross Donut Dollie each week featuring vintage photos from their time in Vietnam or Korea and answers to the 10-questions listed below. We ask that you check here each Friday to learn more about the Donut Dollies in their own words. Please help spread the story of the Donut Dollies by sharing these posts, especially with any veterans you may know.
Here are the questions the Donut Dollies will answer:
What prompted you to join the SRAO (Supplemental Recreation Activities Overseas) and want to go to Vietnam?
When and where were you stationed in Vietnam? Did you go by a nickname?
What was a routine day like in Vietnam?
Did you ever have any “close calls” either on base or in any vehicles?
Were you ever injured while in Vietnam?
What was it like to visit the soldiers in the hospitals?
How was the transition returning home to the United States?
What would you like people to remember and understand most about the women who served?
How do you feel Veterans think of your time having served with them? Have any Veterans expressed their feelings to you directly?
What were your fondest or most interesting memories of your time serving in Vietnam?
Please check back each week to learn a new story directly from a Donut Dollie!
