    I was lucky enough to have a wonderful “Dollie” as girlfriend in RVN. I came home with the her at the end of my year. These girls saved my sanity, especially near the end of my tour when I lost too many good friends. I have a few photos to share of our time at the Donut Dolly Hooch in An Khe and a group shot of the 4 girls that were with us in An Khe in 69/70. I would love to pay tribute to these brave and wonderful women that made our lives just a little bit better with a touch of “home”. I carried them many times out to LZ’s in the middle of II Corps, and took them swimming in Quy Nhon. They always had a smile and some cheer for you.

    I worked with USAID in Saigon 1969-1970 and several months at 3rd Field HOspital on Sat afternoons. On the day the military started pulling out in June 1969 I was on the stage after giving coffee and doughnuts to the military on the chinooks before the event. I was standing on the stage in a Red Cross uniform next to a military female officer. I have never seen a photo of this event with all our military standing during the speeches, etc. Is there a photo album of this event with the AP? or military.

    I just found your web page and it brought back many memories of my time in the US Army in Vietnam Sept 67 to Sept 69. I was an air traffic controller at Song Be, Dakto and my last year in Pleiku. As an ATC dude I often scrounged flights for Donut Dollies to locations they had to get to. I always had plenty of pilots ready to give these very brave ladies a lift to their destination. I am currently retired in Middleton Idaho, near Boise, and volunteer at the located in Nampa Idaho. We have very little in our displays at this fine organization. I would like to expand this. Please visit the site and let me know if can help. I will also talk to the Boss about the Donut Dollies. I salute you.

    Dear Friends:

    I love your newsletter!

    As a magazine writer and book author, I’ve enjoyed seeing the emails. Through Texas Tech University Press, I published a book, “Rain In Our Hearts”, featuring the photographs of James Allen Logue, who served as an infantryman in Alpha Company, 4/31, 196th LIB, Americal Divison, from October 1969-October 1970. Jim was then and continues to be a professional photographer. The book concerns much more than “war stories” but life stories. Together he and I traveled the country and interviewed 70 from his company. Another interviewed was a DD featured in a photograph in the book with one of the infantrymen. This DD, whose mother was also a DD, went on to spend much of her life in humanitarian work. I’m wondering if I might write a small piece about her and publish the photograph of her with the infantryman on LZ West? In a way, this wonderful woman has spent much of her life in selfless work for great causes. Please let me know.
