Women Vietnam Veterans: Our Untold Stories, by Donna Lowery, a
Vietnam veteran, chronicles the participation of American military
women during the Vietnam War. This little-known group of an estimated
1,200 women from the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy left its
mark in Vietnam from 1962 to 1973. They served in a myriad of duties
from intelligence analysts, flight controllers, clerk-typists,
translators, physical therapists, dieticians and communications
specialists among many others.
Our Untold Stories
allows the women to speak for themselves about their experiences, and,
for the first time ever, brings names, facts and figures together in one
literary work. The purpose of the book is to be historically
significant to future researchers.
The history of
the military women in Vietnam began in 1962 with Army Major Anne Marie
Doering. She was born in what became North Vietnam. Her father was a
French officer, her mother a German citizen. When her father died, her
mother married an American businessman. Her service in Vietnam as a
Combat Intelligence Officer is a compelling story of the US military
women in a war zone.
It was not until 1965 that the
US Women’s Army Corps (WAC) sent two women as advisors to assist
the newly formed Vietnam Women’s Armed Forces Corps. The following
year, the Army authorized the establishment of a WAC Detachment in
Vietnam. Soon, thereafter, the Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy also
sent women to serve in various capacities.
1973, under the Paris Peace Accords, the last women left Vietnam along
with the remaining men. The impact they had in Vietnam set the stage for
the expansion and integration of women into additional roles in the
military. Today, women serve in areas of active combat, demonstrating
their abilities and dedication to the mission.
