It makes me so upset and also mad for what happened to Sharon Lane.
I was south of her location when she was killed in that rocket attack. Chu Lai was called by "us" GI's
"Rocket City." It was nice on the beach but that was it..
Sharon and all the Vietnam nurses "Belong To Vietnam veterans" because they will always be in our hearts. They took such great care of us when we were injured.
God Bless Her.
Christopher:> US Combat Veteran, Vietnam, 1968-1969 & 1970-1971.

Christopher-I'm glad to see that Sharon Lane is still fondly remembered and respected by the soldiers she cared for during her time in Vietnam. This was a story I never knew until visiting the McKinley Museum a couple of years ago. I shared it because I felt it was important that her story, courage and service be remembered. Thanks for stopping by and commenting here. Thanks for your service and for remembering Sharon.
