The history of service of African-American servicewomen, who served in Vietnam, is reflected in the Women's Memorial Foundation Register and archive.The stories and memories included in this paper illustrate the experiences of a few of the many African-American servicewomen who volunteered for assignment to Vietnam, as well as their reasons for volunteering and the methods they used to overcome the gender and race-driven difficulties they encountered.
A MESSAGE FROM VVA LIFE MEMBER JOAN FUREY
I'm sending this out to all of you to be sure you know about the study VA is doing on the Long Term Health Outcomes of Vietnam Era Women. This is a 4-5 year study that will look at the physical and mental health status of military women who served in Vietnam, elsewhere in Southeast Asia (Japan, Philippines, etc) and those who served in the United States. They are hoping to get 10,000 women to participate in the study. I am the veteran consultant to the study. They are particularly anxious to get women who have never received care from VA, as their experience is not known. It is an important study for all women veterans, as no study has ever been done on the long term health outcomes of military service on women. Not ever, so this is historic and will be beneficial to not only us, as Vietnam era women but also to the current and future generations of women veterans in helping to improve assessment instruments and services for them (and us) both now and as they age. I'm attaching a copy of a brochure that describes the study. If you are willing to participate I urge you to send an e-mail to email@example.com.
