This is Patricia. I had the #honor of meeting her today at a #VA event, which paid tribute to female #vietnamveterans She served in U-Tapao #Thailand during the #VietnamConflict where she worked Supply for the #usairforce While many were #drafted during #Vietnam Pat volunteered to join the #military and then had to fight to be allowed to serve in Thailand. She was told #females weren’t serving over there, but once she arrived she learned she had a handful of other #women to keep her company. At 21 years old, she served on that #deployment for 13 months. The best part of the deployment for Pat? She met her late husband there. ❤️ It was truly an honor to meet Pat today and hear some of her story!
