Vietnam Nurses, With Dana DelanyStreaming Video - 2012
In this Emmy Award - winning documentary hosted by Dana Delany - Nurse Colleen McMurphy from the classic Vietnam War drama China Beach - eight nurses describe the horrors they faced in-country, the emergency care they provided at surgical and evacuation hospitals, the deep emotional scars they sustained while diligently doing their jobs, their return home to less than a hero's welcome, and their ongoing efforts to cope with post-traumatic stress disorder. In addition, graphic period photos and footage provide background on and insights into the Vietnam era, while a segment on the creation of the Vietnam Women's Memorial in Washington, D.C., poignantly captures the sense of closure that many of these female veterans felt at the monument's dedication - selfless women who served their country with admirable distinction.
