In our fifth installment of Memorabilia Monday, we present a thank you note received by Donut Dollie Marrilee Shannon upon her transfer from Cu Chi to Phan Rang from Major General Edward Bautz, Jr. Marrilee was stationed as an SRAO (Supplemental Recreation Activities Overseas) programmer and director at three bases – Cu Chi 25th Infantry, Cam Rahn AFB, Phan Rang AFB from late 1969 – late 1970. Many Donut Dollies received similar heartfelt thank you notes for boosting the morale of the men.
We thank Marrilee Shannon for her service and for sharing this piece of memorabilia with us. You can also read Marrilee’s in-her-own-words Donut Dollie Detail feature at www.donutdollies.com/donut-dollie-detail/ddd-marrilee-shannon
