The Donut Dollies: A Documentary
Coming soon to film festivals all across the nation: The Donut Dollies!
The documentary is the untold story of the American women who volunteered to go to Vietnam on an impossible mission: help the troops forget about the war.
From the official website:
"This is the story of a group of amazing American women who volunteered to serve during the Vietnam War through the Red Cross as part of a program called Supplemental Recreation Activities Overseas (SRAO), better known by our brave military men as “The Donut Dollies”. Armed with nothing but cookies and home-made entertainment programs, the Donut Dollies risked their lives every day as they tried to fulfill their mission and cheer up the US troops. Despite their service and sacrifice, their stories and contributions in Vietnam have gone largely unnoticed and unappreciated. We’re hoping this project will change that.
