The Untold Story, 50 years in the making, of the American women who volunteered during the Vietnam War on an impossible mission…
[USA] In 1968, two best friends joined an elite team and flew into a war zone wearing powder blue dresses. They were Red Cross Donut Dollies. These idealistic young women embraced their mission -- to cheer up battle-worn GIs on the frontlines of the Vietnam War -- with energy, creativity, compassion and resolve, but had no idea what they were getting into. 46 years later, they reunite in Vietnam to retrace their steps; ask why they went; ask whether they made a difference; unlock buried memories and share their stories for the first time.
