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 1,000 women from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force 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, dietitians 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. In March 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.

Vietnam University of Oklahoma Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In this oral history thirty-three Oklahomans speak for heartland Americans who fought the Vietnam War, and for those who waited, some of whom are still waiting, for their loved ones to come home, alive or in a body bag. No single political bent is stressed, and attempts to flavor the manuscript with dogma have been resisted. In the ranks are super patriots, reluctant warriors, gung ho marines, skeptics, embittered former patriots, and humanists-whites, blacks, Indians, and Hispanics-men and women, officers and grunts. The veterans and their loved ones tell what made them enlist in this most unpopular war, what sort of preparation they had, how they handled combat and the rest of their tours in Southeast Asia, how they dealt with the mixed reception once back home and the grief and disgust that were Vietnam's reward for valor. These men and women think of themselves not as heroes but as common folk. And they are right: they were ordinary people thrust by politics and fate into the uncommon circumstances of the war. As they bring to life their deadened memories, they try to tell us what it was really like, calling to our minds again names such as Khe Sanh, Highway I, the Tet Offensive, and Hamburger Hill, reminding us of what some of us chose to forget. Readers who have not served in the armed forces may find some of these first-person accounts harsh or obscene, but combat veterans from all wars will understand immediately why they are the way they are. What all may find incredible is some of the veterans' sensitive appreciation of the beauty that surrounded them as they fought the war that nobody wanted. Stanley W. Beesley, who was a Ranger team leader in Vietnam and twice was awarded the Bronze Star, teaches school in Shawnee, Oklahoma. Of the other contributors, whose accounts he compiled and edited, he says, "They opened up their souls and trusted me and let me carry their hearts around in my hands."

Dear Mom and Dad, Love from Vietnam Joseph E. Abodeely

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

1st Air Cavalry Lieutenant Joe Abodeely shipped off to Vietnam at the beginning and height of the Tet Offensive in January 1968. He kept a diary and wrote letters home recounting his experiences in real time about the patrols, the combat air assaults, the discomfort, the anxiety, the elation during major military operations, and his experiences with the Vietnamese people. The year-1968-was one of the most volatile years in Vietnam. It was an interesting year, a year of idealism, a year of protest, a year of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll-the bloodiest year of the war. In the U.S., antiwar protests raged; there was rioting at the Democratic National Convention; the Women's Liberation Movement progressed; the Civil Rights Movement was in full force; and Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated. Young men waited with great anxiety for announcements from the lottery. Some got drafted or enlisted. Others protested against the war, burned their draft cards, or ran off to Canada. Two-thirds of those who served in Vietnam enlisted; one-third was drafted. The NVA were great fighters. They fought the Japanese, later the French, and now the Americans. But the U.S. soldiers were better. It is a truism that the U.S. won nearly 100% of their actions in combat and controlled the areas they chose to control. "Dear Mom and Dad, Love From Vietnam," will allow you to experience the Vietnam War from the eyes of someone who lived through it and recorded actions and events in real time in a year-long diary and in over 50 letters. Abodeely went to Vietnam to help the South Vietnamese people fight the Communist invasion from North Vietnam and Communist Vietcong insurgents. He writes: "There is no 'one' Vietnam experience-there are as many as there are those who went to Vietnam-but this is mine-the combat, the excitement, the discomfort, the fear, the accomplishments, the hubris, the politics, the challenges, and the sex. This is 1968-MY Vietnam experience. "The Vietnam War was just, legal, and truly to defend the freedom of the South Vietnamese. The American military won the Tet Offensive in 1968; brought the war to a successful end in January 1973; and left Vietnam promising to logistically support the South Vietnamese if the North invaded again. Watergate occurred; a newly elected Democrat Congress ended all funding to South Vietnam. The Communist North invaded and took over South Vietnam. These are facts. "Those who say they care about veterans should speak out and show their appreciation for the service of our nation's largest group of living veterans-Vietnam veterans. I have a personal mission to educate everyone about the Vietnam War-its history, its reasons, its battles, its soldiers' heroism and accomplishments, its politics, and the shameful conduct of those who maligned an entire generation who honorably served their country." "Dear Mom and Dad, Love From Vietnam" is a must-read for anyone interested in a true, on the spot account of action and experience of a 1st Air Cavalry combat unit commander in the Vietnam War.

Resilient Warrior Totalrecall Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

It has been said that the only warriors who do not suffer after combat are those who were killed. I cannot attest to that for all battle tested warriors but I certainly can for one---me. Some years ago a young, 13 year old eighth grade student from the Fairfield, Iowa Middle School once asked me, "Were you wounded in the war? I had been invited to speak in Mrs. Broz's class for many years to talk about my wartime experiences. I had been asked and answered many questions but this one was different. I paused, thought deeply and quickly, and replied. "Yes I was wounded, seriously wounded but not a wound that anyone could see and fix." His question gave me pause to quickly think about warriors in all the wars that have been fought, including mine, whose wounds were unseen, untreated and debilitating even though no blood was shed. I spent a sleepless night wondering if my answer had satisfied him...or me. What was there about my military service that left me so hopeless and so helpless when I returned home to civilian life? Was it me? The military itself? The combat? This is what I recalled; perhaps the answers would come as I wrote my experiences down. "I've been practicing Transcendental Meditation for 40 years. It's a great tool for reducing stress ... especially the stress our men and women of the Armed Forces are going through now." --Clint Eastwood, Academy Award-Winning Film Director "Stress causes, anxiety, depression, and violent behavior. Transcendental Meditation is a remarkable process for reducing stress-it can help people live a long and better life." --Mehemet Oz, MD, America's Doctor "In this riveting memoir, a true American hero describes how Transcendental Meditation changed his life for good. A must-read for those struggling with the aftershocks of combat, and their loved ones." --Norman Rosenthal, M.D. Author of Transcendence: Healing and Transformation Through Meditation "The hidden cost of war includes long-term pain and suffering for may veterans and their families. This wonderful book shows how meditation can be a practical, simple, and effective way for our returning warriors to find peace." --Professor Linda Bilmes, Harvard University, co-author of The Three Trillion Dollar War "The Resilient warrior is a riveting read. What is especially impressive is how Jerry Yellin conflates his own war and PTSD experiences, and those experiences of other veterans, with the powerful compelling evidence of the benefits of using meditation as a means to overcome this disorder. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking relief from stress, regardless of the source of the trauma." --Donald Mikkleson, Vietnam Veteran "My son, Dory, was an eight-year Army veteran who committed suicide early this year and I have suffered terribly. On a really bad day, a few weeks after Dory's death, Jerry Yellin suggested that I read The Resilient Warrior and learn to meditate. Since starting to meditate I can feel the stress leaving me, and my days and nights are getting a little better day-by-day, week-by-week. I strongly recommend Jerry's book to veterans and families of veterans, and anyone who is looking for a way of the nightmare of PTSD." --Lin Klock, Vero Beach, Flori

Even now something is missing from the history of Vietnam. Behind the burning sense of horror and betrayal the personal stories remain untold. No one has bothered to talk to the men and women who went to Vietnam and fought the war. What happened to boys and girls straight out of school who were plunged from the basketball park into the napalm jungle? Who were they fighting for? How did conscripts and volunteers live through the war and how can they live with the scars? Mark Baker recorded conversations with dozens of Vietnam veterans. NAM is a unique and harrowing collection of those interviews, as raw and shocking as an open wound. This is the story of the human cost of a war that had no survivors, only veterans.

Crimes of War: Iraq Nation Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Crimes of War -- Iraq provides a comprehensive legal, historical, and psychological exploration of the war in Iraq from the same editorial team whose 1971 "Crimes of War was a landmark book about Vietnam and the revelation of American war crimes. The editors apply standards of international criminal law, as set forth at Nuremberg after World War II, and by subsequent developments regarding individual responsibility and accountability. These principles have to do with the waging of aggressive war, attacks on civilian centers of population, rights of resistance against an illegal occupation, and the abuse of prisoners. Explorations of psychology and human behavior include levels of motivation and response in connection with torture at Abu Ghraib; the phenomenon of the atrocity-producing situation in both Vietnam and Iraq (in which counter-insurgency, military policies, and angry grief could cause ordinary people to participate in atrocities); the behavior of doctors and medics in colluding in torture at Abu Ghraib; emerging testimony of American veterans of Iraq concerning the confusions of the mission, and the widespread killing of civilians; and accounts of broadening unease and psychological disturbance among men and women engaged in combat.

Four young women are brutally attacked in a convent near an all-black town in America in the mid-1970s. The inevitability of this attack, and the attempts to avert it, lie at the heart of PARADISE. Spanning the birth of the Civil Rights movement, Vietnam, the counter culture and the politics of the late 1970s, deftly manipulating past, present and future, this novel of mysterious motives reveals the interior lives of the citizens of the town with astonishing clarity. The drama of its people - from the four young women and their elderly protector, to conservative businessmen, rednecks, a Civil Rights minister and veterans of three wars - richly evokes clashes that have bedevilled American society: between race and racelessness; patriarchy and matriarchy; religion and magic; freedom and belonging; promiscuity and fidelity. Magnificent in its scope, PARADISE is a revelation in the intensity of its potrayal of human complexity and in the sheer force of its narrative.
