Joann Puffer Kotcher served in Viet Nam for 12 months during the conflict, after a 14 month tour with the Red Cross in Korea.  Kotcher, and other Donut Dollies, assigned to combat and combat support duty, often found themselves in fox holes nose to nose with the enemy. Kotcher also served Special Forces teams in the combat jungle. She was one of the first women allowed in a war zone. She was almost killed at least 6 times. The Daughters of the American Revolution have given Donut Dolly their Award for Women in American History.

Joann Puffer Kotcher will talk about her time in Vietnam and the history behind the Donut Dolly’s. There will be time after for a Q & A and opportunity to purchase her book, “Donut Dolly: An American Red Cross Girl's War in Vietnam” for those interested.
