The Doughnut Dolly Series... AFSister



"At the request of the military, the Red Cross sent teams of young women, college graduates all, to Vietnam. Their mission was to operate the Red Cross Recreation Centers and conduct "audience participation recreation programs." For the soldiers, the SRAO program provided them with the opportunity to "hang-out" with pretty girls from back home, play games, do crafts, and for just a momement forget where they were and what they were doing. It was as though the Red Cross had sent these young women to the other side of the planet to establish a summer camp for soldiers. But such seemingly small diversions made all the difference in world to the men and their morale."
