Summary
Vuic (history, Bridgewater College) says the story she tells is not just about the nurses themselves, or the Army or the Corps, but also about changing gender roles as reflected in how the Army used nurses and how the nurses framed their experience, and all against the background of the US and American military at a crucial turning point in the midst of social and cultural turmoil. Her topics include meeting nursing demands for the Vietnam War, nursing education and practice, pregnant and married nurses, gender and sexuality in the war zone, and postwar depictions of Vietnam War nurses.
