Donut Dolly: An American Red Cross Girl’s War in Vietnam
Joann Puffer Kotcher, one of the first women allowed in a combat zone during the Vietnam War, will discuss the riveting story of her service as an American Red Cross Donut Dolly. These brave young women set up recreation centers and brought books, snacks and a welcome reminder of home to soldiers in the field. A highly dangerous mission, Kotcher, and other Donut Dollies, assigned to combat and combat support duty often found themselves in fox holes nose to nose with the enemy. She spent a year in Vietnam during the height of the war and, upon her return, was awarded the Civilian Service Citation for merit and bravery.
