We are so excited to announce that last night our film, The Donut Dollies, won Best Documentary Feature at the GI Film Festival San Diego! We thank the women and veterans that served in Korea and Vietnam, especially those who shared their stories and archival materials with us, all of the donors who have supported us over the last five years, the songwriters and musicians who shared their music with us, and all of the people who generously provided advice, guidance and support to bring our project to fruition.

We look forward to sharing our film at more film festivals and screenings around the country, and via DVD and streaming as soon as possible.

In The News

Earlier this week Cincinnati TV station WCPO aired a moving tribute to Donut Dollie Judy Squire. This story was reported by Craig McKee and features Judy’s sisters, who talk about her service and experiences in Vietnam. The story explains how Judy had wanted to join the Vietnam Veterans of America, but not having been in the service, she didn’t qualify for membership. Michael Neuman, President of Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 649 of Clermont County, OH, checked on gaining Judy membership with the VVA and finally received approval to grant her an Honorary Life Membership. In light of this honor, Michael Neuman recommends that Donut Dollies stand up and be recognized.

The Donut Dollies Documentary are honored to have contributed images and footage from our film for this news report.
