that Christmas Day in Vietnam.
One of our favorite, though infrequent, missions was to take American
Red Cross recreational workers, called "Donut Dollies" to visit troops
out in the field. They normally wore light blue uniforms, but the two young
ladies had blue and red uniforms, above, just for the Holiday season. While
on that Christmas Day mission, we stopped at the PCI clinic at Da Mpao
( pronounced Dam Pow ) to deliver donations collected from the men of the
192nd Assault Helicopter Company on Christmas Eve.
Project Concern International,

work in Asia, Central America, and several US cities.
