The process of locating military nurses who served in the Vietnam War was greatly expedited by Joan Barron, R.N. Her suggestions and contacts were useful in starting the study. Another nurse, Comdr. Cassie Greeley, USNR, NC, provided insightful comments on the questions I developed for the interviews.
Brig. Gen. Sarah P. Wells, USAF, NC (Ret.) helped me locate photographs to use in the book. Other nurses shared their war photographs: Capt. Mary Ann Gallagher Ibach, USNR, NC; Col. Sharon La France, USAFR, NC; Lt. Col. Mary Jo Rice, USAR, NC; Maj. Marra Peche, USAR, NC; former lieutenant Nancy Spears, USA, NC; former lieutenant Janice Stewart, USA, NC, and former lieutenant Martha Mosley, USA, NC. Thank you for your time and assistance.
Several nurses reviewed and reacted to my ideas presented in this book: Adm. Frances Shea Buckley, USN, NC (Ret.); Col. Sharon La France USAFR, NC; Brig. Gen. Diann A. Hale, USAF, NC (Ret.); Brig. Gen. Sarah P. Wells, USAF, NC (Ret.); former lieutenant Joan Furey, USA, NC and former captain Sara McVicker, USA, NC. Their detailed suggestions proved accurate and very useful.
