Civilian families were in Vietnam before the military arrived and when Vietnam fell. Much has been written about the "blood and guts" role of the military, but little about other Americans who were there during the war era. That American women were a part of the scene comes as a surprise to most people. They had to fight their own battles behind the lines while ordered to ignore the tragedy of war and "bombs bursting in air." It was difficult enough living in Vietnam as a cohesive family. But after evacuation from that country, lengthy separations from husbands who stayed behind to work sometimes resulted in strained relationships and/or divorces. But these women stood tall during the good and bad times.
