Combat Nurses of Vietnam: What's an angel doin' here in hell?

  • Speaker: Sheon Montgomery, MS
  • Date: Wednesday, November 7, 2012
  • Time: 12:00 noon
  • Location: ACB 110

The war experiences Army nurses faced daily in Vietnam in their traditional role as caretaker—patching up young bodies, lifting spirits, and nursing wounded enemy soldiers—followed them home and often interfered with their recovery from the stress of combat nursing. Sheon Montgomery will explore nurses’ experiences in Vietnam, how women veterans struggled with long-term medical and mental/emotional conditions, and their fight for recognition of their level of service and the veterans benefits due to them.

Sheon Montgomery, Assistant Archivist, joined The Vietnam Center and Archive in October 2009. Sheon received her Master of Science in Information with a specialization in Archives and Records Management from the University of Michigan’s School of Information. Sheon is a member of the Society of Southwest Archivists and is a board member for the Ranch Hosts with the National Ranching Heritage Center at TTU. This presentation will not be linked to the additional TTUHSC campuses; however, it will be recorded for future viewing on the OIA website.
