Holley Watts' friends used to say, "You're not a guy. You don't have to go." "That's right!" she responded. In 1966-1967 Watts served in the American Red Cross Supplemental Recreation Overseas Activities program. She and other women, who were dubbed "Donut Dollys," provided outreach and a touch of home to American soldiers stationed in Vietnam. 50 years later, Holley reflects on the experience.
