WOMEN IN COMBAT: Donut Dollies in Action!

Joann Puffer Kotcher, one of the first women allowed in a combat zone, will discuss the riveting story of her service as an American Red Cross Donut Dolly. These brave young women set up recreation centers and brought books, snacks and a welcome reminder of home to soldiers in the fi eld. A highly dangerous mission, Kotcher and other Donut Dollies assigned to combat and combat support duty often found themselves in foxholes nose-to-nose with the enemy. She spent a year in Vietnam during the height of the war and, upon her return, was awarded the Civilian Service Citation for merit and bravery. Generously sponsored by Pomeroy Living.
