Summary
Author Kotcher was a young university graduate when she joined the first groups of civilian women officially allowed into the Vietnam combat zone. Here, she presents her journal entries from May 1966 through May 1967 in Vietnam, where she served as program director for the American Red Cross. This rare account covers being under ambush, briefly kidnapped, and socializing with prostitutes, generals, and war heroes while serving coffee and Kool-Aid in recreation centers and mobile visits in the jungle. It is interspersed with background and summary based on her memories and on interviews with others who were there. B&w photos from her personal collection offer a new perspective of the war in Vietnam. An epilogue gives notes on what happened to people mentioned in the journals
