This Friday we will post the 53rd edition of the Donut Dollie Detail. This feature provides a platform for Donut Dollies to share their memories of serving in the Korean and/or Vietnam Wars. Each feature includes answers to 10-questions and 4 in-country photos provided by a Donut Dollie. The Donut Dollie Detail has been well received by veterans, Donut Dollies and the public, as well as becoming a great educational tool for those interested in military and women’s history, including many from around the world, some who are Donut Dollie historical reenactors.
If you are a Donut Dollie, we would be honored to create an edition of the Donut Dollie Detail just for you. The first step is to answer the 10-questions listed below and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org Secondly, we ask that you scan and email at least 4 in-country photos (at 300dpi or higher, please ask if help is needed), which include photos such as one of yourself, programming to the men, DD group photos and any that you feel would tell a story. Once received, we’ll review everything, determine if any clarifications are needed and then schedule the posting of your feature here on www.facebook.com/thedonutdollies and at www.donutdollies.com/category/donut-dollie-detail Once posted, you’ll have the opportunity to share your feature with family and friends, and through reading and responding to the comments received, you could reconnect with a Donut Dollie sister who you served with or a veteran who remembers you from the recreation center or a firebase run.
We hope you will be interested in taking part in the Donut Dollie Detail, and we look forward to sharing your story. We thank you for your service!
