Vietnam veteran SGM Donna Lowery, author of Women Vietnam Veterans: Our Untold Story, will discuss the participation of American military women (non-nurses) 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. The women fulfilled myriad duties as intelligence analysts, flight controllers, clerk-typists, translators, physical therapists, dietitians and communications specialists, and many other roles. A book signing follows the program.
Presented in part by the Lawrence F. O’Brien Family, Pritzker Military Museum & Library, AARP, FedEx Corporation, and the National Archives Foundation. Additional support provided by the Maris S. Cuneo Foundation, The Eliasberg Family Foundation, Inc., and HISTORYⓇ.
The Opening Weekend Celebration is presented in part by L3 Technologies, Inc., and Bell Helicopter.
