More About This Book

Overview

Cry, laugh, and share women’s Vietnam war experiences in their own words in this collection of stories, poems, and pictures of the Women Who Served. Over 11,000 women from America, New Zealand, and Australia went to Vietnam as nurses, American Red Cross workers, physical therapists, entertainers, librarians, and more.

Ride along in a helicopter on a Christmas Day mission of the heart with Army pilots and American Red Cross Donut Dollies, in Vietnam, 1969. Meet Gary’s angel, a physical therapist who a wounded soldier found over three decades later to tell her, “thank you.” Take a trip back to the war with a woman when she finds her true love, a soldier fighting in Nam. Experience the war through a nurse’s eyes. Learn where the veterans are today. Read about the Australians and New Zealanders who served in Vietnam. Find out why male Vietnam veterans think the women who nursed, comforted, entertained, or just talked with them were Angels in Vietnam.

Forward by David Hackworth, author of About Face and Steel My Soldiers’ Hearts.

    You've got to read this book!

    Anyone who has a mother, sister, wife, father, brother, husband, cousin, aunt, uncle, grandparent, friend or just someone you knew who served in Vietnam must read this book. I am the proud daughter of the 'Dogfaced Soldier' written about in this book and thank God daily for his willingness to serve. I still grieve for those who didn't return and say a big 'WELCOME HOME' to those who made it back! As a female veteran I am also proud to say a special thanks to my sisters who risked their lives to care for our wounded. This book is a long overdue tribute to them all! Thank you Jan for all the hard work and long hours you put in to gathering all the stories and making them available for all the world to enjoy!

    Angels Captures Your Heart and MInd!

    Jan put together a rainbow of experiences, all blending together to paint an emotional photograph of what Vietnam was like for those women who served there. It also adds another whole mix to the emotional and spiritual colors of this book, by giving a voice to those men who observed, or shared that time and place with so many "angels". It is a great read - because each story is so different as it records many unexplored views and experience of that war. I think it is one of those rare books that you would gain something from reading it two, or even three times, as you will keep discovering more "gold" with each reading. I highly recommend this book .
