Book 2: MICHIGAN BOUND Series, Lieutenant Dee – Vietnam, 1968

My Vietnam heroine – Lt. Dee.

In 2012, there were 214,098 women serving in the U.S.A military. Back in 1968, when I place Lieutenant Dee in Vietnam, there were no statistics available for women serving. The top brass didn’t think it necessary. There were no female soldiers. What the military needed were nurses. At twenty-three years of age, Lt. Dee will travel for nearly 24 hours in full officer’s uniform. While the men wore comfortable fatigues for the flight, Dee wears nylons, high heels and a suit.
