Amazing stories from 26 women who served in Vietnam, definitely worth a read if you like personal stories from history. It amazes me what these women went through while in Vietnam, most were nurses dealing with ongoing casualties, it amazes me that they were able to still function after getting back to the states. Some of the women wrote about Agent Orange and the effects that it has had on them and their children. Or PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and the fact that these brave women also suffered from the effects of this disorder. It shows me that even though this book was written in the 1980's that our government didn't really do much to help our veterans when they got back from combat.
