Overview

The Vietnam War was the longest American war as well as being one of the costliest to our nation. At its height, over half-a-million U.S. troops were "in country." Major combat units began to arrive in early 1965 and had returned home to the "land of the big PX" eight years later in 1973. Over that period more than ten thousand American women served in Vietnam.. "It was an ugly, dirty war. Where the combat zone began and ended was often indistinct. All Americans were looked on as targets by the enemy. Whey then did American women go to Vietnam? What was their life like in the war zone?. "What were their lives like after they came home? A Time Remembered provides answers to these questions and more. In doing so it is also a fitting tribute to these women who gave so much.

    It's wonderful to read about women serving!

    Knowing how hard of a time I have had getting some women Veterans to open up, I was interested to see how the author collected her information and put it together. I quickly realized that she laid out her book by branches of the military and then the civilians who also served. She started quickly by stating, ¿Estimates of the number of women who served in Vietnam vary, ranging from 7,500 to 11,000 military women, with the greatest number being nurses. Add to this arbitrary figure the hundreds and hundreds of women sponsored by civilian organizations, and the figure could be near thirty thousand.¿ As I opened the front cover I soon realized that I have already met or been in touch with some of the women the author interviewed. That helped to make this book even more interesting to me. Each chapter was about another woman and what she did during the Vietnam War. Each was powerful in its own right. The first eleven chapters were about the women who served as nurses in Vietnam. The author had five members of the Army Nurse Corps (ANC), two who were in the Navy Nurse Corps (NNC) and four women from the Air Force Nurse Corps (AFNC). Naturally having served in the Army myself I was more familiar with the terminology used by the five women who were in the ANC as well as the three women who were in the Women¿s Army Corps (WAC). The nurses had been with the 36th Evacuation (EVAC) Hospital, 67th EVAC, 91st EVAC, and 24th EVAC. They were in Vung Tau, Qui Nhon, Tuy Hoa, and Long Binh respectively. The events they described were amazing. The WACs had been in Saigon and Long Binh. Other chapters included stories from civilians. Those women were in Vietnam with the Special Services, United Service Organization (USO), American Red Cross (ARC), and the US Agency for International Development (USAID). Some of the chapters were actually written by the women themselves. Others were put together following interviews and emails between the author and the women. Regardless of how they were done¿they showed the various aspects of how these women¿s lives were affected both in-country and since returning to The World. This book is a tribute to the women who volunteered to put themselves in harm¿s way. It should be required reading for students, as well as military members and families of those who have served. This book will help many others to understand that it is not just the male Veterans who suffer from various maladies of war. Our women¿s history is very important and sadly there is not enough books written about what our women have done to serve our country. I was glad to see this one on the book shelf at my local bookstore.
