    Does anyone remember Pam White from Rossville Ga?
    Was in Cam Rahn Bay in 69.

      Hi Ray,

      I was in-country '66-'67 so Pam and I never worked together. I knew her more because I was a friend of her former brother-in-law, Bill, and it was he who told me that she died of CA in 2010.

        Linda,

        I got your message a couple weeks back and have gotten another response today from Holley Watts. Thanks Linda for your message. I am very sorry to say that Holley told me that Pam passed away in 2010.
        She and I grew up about 40 miles apart and we talked about how we might meet up back home some day. Over the last 10 years I have called every White in Catoosa county and never found any of her relatives (epark1@att.net).

    Pam was in my training class. We were in VietNam from April 1969 until April 1970. I will never forget her Southern drawl and "ya'll."
    I used the term "you guys" instead.

    I was in contact with two other Dollies and a Nurse that was not a Dollie. My computer crashed and I lost the addresses. If you recognize Ray Parker, please get back in touch. I have some info on articles one of you asked about.

    I commanded a company and the Donut Dollies came to us once a week for about 1/2 hour. Trouble was that only the night shift troops were in the company area when they came, so they saw only about 10% of the men. I asked the girls if they coould come for a longer time and they replied that they did not feel they were well received by so few men. But they agreed to come longer, so I secured extra ice cream, had the cooks serve up portions, keep them frozen in mermite cans, and have them ready for me to pick up. Then hitched a trailer to my jeep, put the girls in back of the jeep, and off we went to the many operational ares of my unit. The troops loved it, appreciated the ice cream and seeing the girls. The watched their language and always got red faced when on of the Dollies asked the name of the dog they adopted and kept in the area (the names were usually not words for a proper young lady to hear!) If I could not make the weekly run, then the XO or 1st SGT filled in. The girls loved it and told me they really felt great at my unit and encouraged other units to do the same. In fact, I started dating one of the Dollies (Marcia), we got engaged, but never married. I forgot her last name, but she was in Vietnam in 1968, 1969, and was from Minnesota. Another Dollie sent me a watercolor she did on Vietnam and it proudly is displayed near the front door on my home.

    Anyone know the whereabouts of any of the women that were at Phan Rang AB in 1969?
    I was a photographer for the 600th Photo Sqdn Det 5 and was wondering if I could find one of the girls that was there. I have a photo buried in a box that I took of her that maybe soon I can get it scanned.
    Thank you.

      Cathy,
      You might have been the young woman that I photographed at the photo lab one evening. My email is alfadoctor@yahoo.com I will have to open that box of photographs that has been sealed since 1969 to find the photo.
