Event Type: Adult Program
Date: 8/25/2018
Start Time: 1:00 PM
 Join us for a presentation from Vietnam Donut Dolly Joann Puffer Kotcher! 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 field. A highly dangerous mission, Kotcher, and other Donut Dollies, assigned to combat and combat support duty often found themselves in fox holes 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.
