                               Served in Vietnam 31 Jan 1967- 19 Aug 1968

Sergeant Major Donna A. Lowery is originally from Eugene, Oregon. She began her military career in the Women's Army Corps (WAC) in June 1965 at Fort McClellan, Alabama, followed by training in the personnel field at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.
 
While serving at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, to her surprise, young19-year-old SP4 Donna Lowery was selected as one of the initial group of Army enlisted women to serve in Vietnam, arriving in 1967. She served 19 months in country and counts that time as one of her most interesting assignments.
 
In her 26 years of service, Lowery was First Sergeant of four units and served four overseas tours. In 1973, she served at Fort McClellan, Alabama as a Senior Drill Sergeant. Lowery attended Class 27 of the Sergeants Major Academy. Lowery's last assignment before retirement was the Fort Lewis, WA, G5 (Civil Affairs/Psychological Operations) Sergeant Major during Desert Storm. After her retirement from the Army, Lowery worked for the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs and in other positions. She retired from the state in 2006.
 
Since her latest retirement, Lowery has been active in her community. She received one of the Governor's 50 Volunteer Awards for her work with the homeless in 2010. Lowery received the Washington State Outstanding Woman Veteran award for 2011.
Women Vietnam Veterans: Our Untold Stories is a book project she has worked on for several years. She feels strongly that the world needs to know more about the courageous women who willingly served this country in a combat zone at a time when it was not seen as an appropriate thing to do.

Retired federal employee who enjoys stalking the dead. Have been doing research on Burcham, Engle, Lindsey, Garrett, Barnes, Owens, Holder & Jourdan families in AL, MS & TN. If I have created a memorial for one of your family members, feel free to ask for a transfer. I do make mistakes when my mind is working faster that my fingers. If you see any of them, let me know.
 As some of my Find A Grave friends may know, I am a Vietnam veteran. Please take a minute to look at my Vietnam Women Veterans (VWV) Virtual Cemetery. These are the ladies that served in Vietnam that were not nurses and have passed since serving. We went into a combat zone with no combat training or weapons to serve our country and only our families and friends knew we were there. Our book, "Women Vietnam Veterans: Our Untold Stores" is now on sale on Amazon if you would like to learn more about our time in Vietnam. Several of the ladies in my Virtual Cemetery are truly American Heroes who served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. May their sacrifice never be forgotten.

March 1962, MAJ Anne Marie Doering was assigned as the first WAC officer in Vietnam and in Jan 1965, two more WAC advisers came to Vietnam. By 1966 the Army sent a detachment of WAC’s. At the Army HQ in Tan Son Nhut and Long Binh,  they work a variety  of jobs  from clerk Typist and admin personnel, Finanace, data processing, intelligence and communnications, Logistics. Not only did the WAC's  serve there, but the womens Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force did too. It was not just the Nurse corps.  Nueses served but no female medic's.

Women who served in Vietnam were decorated for meritorious service while in Vietnam. they were awarded  the Legion of Honor, Bronze Star Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Air Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, or Joint service Commendation Medal, legion of merit, purple heart,  Defence meritorius medal.

The Distinguished Service Medal (DSM) is a military award of the United States Army that is presented to any person who, while serving in any capacity with the United States military, has distinguished himself or herself by exceptionally meritorious service to the Government in a duty of great responsibility.

The Legion of Merit (LOM) is a military award of the United States Armed Forces that is given for exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services and achievements. The decoration is issued to members of the seven uniformed services of the United States as well as to military and political figures of foreign governments

The Bronze Star Medal, unofficially the Bronze Star, is a United States decoration awarded to members of the United States Armed Forces for either heroic achievement, heroic service, meritorious achievement, or meritorious service in a combat zone.

med2.jpg

The Purple Heart is awarded to members of the armed forces of the U.S. who are wounded by an instrument of war in the hands of the enemy and posthumously to the next of kin in the name of those who are killed in action or die of wounds received in action. It is specifically a combat decoration.

The Meritorious Service Medal (MSM) is a military award presented to members of the United States Armed Forces who distinguished themselves by outstanding meritorious achievement or service to the United States subsequent to January 16, 1969. The MSM was previously awarded as a decoration for achievement during peacetime; effective 11 September 2001, this decoration may also be bestowed in lieu of the Bronze Star Medal for meritorious achievement in a designated combat theater.[1] Normally, the acts or services rendered must be comparable to that required for the Legion of Merit but in a duty of lesser, though considerable, responsibility. According to AR 600-8-22, Paragraph 3-16, the MSM may not be upgraded to or downgraded from a recommended Bronze Star Medal. An MSM recommendation that is downgraded will be approved as an ARCOM.

The Defense Meritorious Service Medal (DMSM) is the third-highest award bestowed upon members of the United States military by the United States Department of Defense. In the order of precedence of the United States Armed Forces, it is worn between the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal. The medal is awarded in the name of the Secretary of Defense to members of the Armed Forces who, while serving in a joint activity, distinguish themselves by non-combat outstanding achievement or meritorious service, but not of a degree to warrant award of the Defense Superior Service Medal.

med3.jpg

The Air Medal is a military decoration of the United States military. The medal was created in 1942 and is awarded for meritorious achievement while participating in aerial flight.

The Joint Service Commendation Medal was authorized on 25 June 1963 and is awarded in the name of the Secretary of Defense to members of the Armed Forces of the United States who, after 1 January 1963, distinguished themselves by meritorious achievement or service. This award is intended for senior service on a joint military staff and is senior in precedence to service-specific Commendation Medals. As such, it is worn above the service Commendation Medals on a military uniform.

The Army Commendation Medal is awarded to any member of the Armed Forces of the United States other than General Officers who, while serving in any capacity with the Army after 6 December 1941, distinguished himself by heroism, meritorious achievement or meritorious service.

med4.jpg

The Joint Service Achievement Medal (JSAM) was established by Secretary of Defense Caspar W. Weinberger on August 3, 1983. It is awarded in the name of the Secretary of Defense to members of the Armed Forces of the United States below the grade of O-6 who, while assigned to a joint activity, distinguish themselves by outstanding achievement or meritorious service, but not to the degree that would warrant award of the Joint Service Commendation Medal

The medal is awarded to any active-duty enlisted member of the United States military who completes three consecutive years of "honorable and faithful service". Such service implies that a standard enlistment was completed without any non-judicial punishment, disciplinary infractions, or court martial offenses. If a service member commits an offense, the three-year mark "resets" and a service member must perform an additional three years of service without having to be disciplined, before the Good Conduct may be authorized

During times of war, the Good Conduct Medal may be awarded for one year of faithful service. The Good Conduct Medal may also be awarded posthumously, to any service member killed in the line of duty.

The National Defense Service Medal is a service medal of the United States Armed Forces established by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953. The medal was first intended to be a "blanket campaign medal" awarded to service members who served honorably during a designated time period of which a "national emergency" had been declared during a time of war or conflict. It may also be issued to active military members for any other period that the Secretary of Defense designates.

Currently, the National Defense Service Medal is the oldest "service medal" in use by the United States Armed Forces.

The Vietnam Service Medal is a military award of the United States Armed Forces established in 1965 by order of President Lyndon B. Johnson. The medal is awarded to recognize service during the Vietnam War and is authorized to service members of each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, provided they meet the award requirements.

The Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal also known as the Vietnam Campaign Medal (Vietnamese: Chi?n D?ch B?i Tinh) is a military campaign medal that was awarded by the former South Vietnamese government. Established in 1964, it was awarded to members of the Republic of Vietnam Military Forces for direct participation in major military operations, and to foreign military personnel for service in South Vietnam.

The medal was awarded for two different periods of service. The first period was from 8 March 1949 to 20 July 1954. The second period was from 1 January 1960 to the end of the war (the date was to be given when the war ended); the war ended with the Fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975.

The criteria for the medal are: "The Soldier's Medal is awarded to any person of the Armed Forces of the United States or of a friendly foreign nation who, while serving in any capacity with the Army of the United States distinguished himself or herself by heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy."

The Presidential Unit Citation (PUC), originally called the Distinguished Unit Citation, is awarded to units of the United States Armed Forces, and those of allied countries, for extraordinary heroism in action against an armed enemy on or after 7 December 1941 (the date of the Attack on Pearl Harbor and the start of American involvement in World War II). The unit must display such gallantry, determination, and esprit de corps in accomplishing its mission under extremely difficult and hazardous conditions so as to set it apart from and above other units participating in the same campaign.

The Army of Occupation Medal is a military award of the United States military which was established by the United States War Department on 5 April 1946.[2] The medal was created in the aftermath of the Second World War to recognize those who had performed occupation service in either Germany, Italy, Austria, or Japan. [3] The original Army of Occupation Medal was intended only for members of the United States Army, but was expanded in 1948 to encompass the United States Air Force shortly after that service's creation. The Navy and Marine equivalent of the Army of Occupation Medal is the Navy Occupation Service Medal.

The Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal (AFEM) is a military award of the United States military, which was first created in 1961 by Executive Order of President John Kennedy. The medal is awarded for participation in "any military campaign of the United States for which no other service medal is authorized."

The Gallantry Cross (Vietnamese: Anh Dung B?i Tinh) is a military decoration of the former Government of South Vietnam (Republic of Vietnam). The medal was created on August 15, 1950 and was awarded to military personnel, civilians, and Armed Forces units and organizations in recognition of deeds of valor or heroic conduct while in combat with the enemy.

Individuals who received the medal, ribbon, and a citation were personally cited at the Armed Forces, Corps, Division, Brigade or Regiment level. The Republic of Vietnam authorized members of units and organizations that were cited, to wear the Gallantry Cross Unit Citation Emblem with Palm and Frame (no medal is authorized)

The Medical Service Corps is comprised of a wide diversity of medical administrative, scientific, and provider specialties ranging from the management and support of the Army's health services system to direct patient care. Health Services, Laboratory Sciences, Preventive Medicine, Behavioral Sciences, Pharmacy, Optometry, Podiatry, and Aeromedical Evacuation.

The Medical Corps (MC) of the U.S. Army is a staff corps (non-combat specialty branch) of the U.S. Army Medical Department (AMEDD) consisting of commissioned medical officers – physicians with either an M.D. or a D.O. degree, at least one year of post-graduate clinical training, and a state medical license.

The MC traces its earliest origins to the first physicians recruited by the Medical Department of the Army, created by the Continental Congress in 1775. The US Congress made official the designation "Medical Corps" in 1908, although the term had long been in use informally among the Medical Department's regular physicians.

Currently, the MC consists of over 4,400 active duty physicians representing all the specialties and subspecialties of civilian medicine. They may be assigned to fixed military medical facilities, to deployable combat units or to military medical research and development duties. They are considered fully deployable soldiers. The Chief of the Medical Corps Branch (under the Army's Human Resources Command) is a colonel and the senior-most Medical Corps officer in the Army is the U.S. Army Surgeon General, a lieutenant general.

The U.S. Army Dental Command, known as DENCOM is a major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Medical Command that provides command and control of the Army's fixed-facility dental treatment facilities, preventive care, dental research, development and training institutions, dental treatment to ensure the oral health and readiness of the force, a trained dental force for worldwide deployment, and structures for evolving missions of the Army.

anc.jpg

The United States Army Nurse Corps (AN or ANC) was formally established by the U.S. Congress in 1901. It is one of the six medical special branches (or "corps") of officers which – along with medical enlisted soldiers – comprise the Army Medical Department (AMEDD).

The ANC is the nursing service for the U.S. Army and provides highly qualified nursing staff in support of the Department of Defense medical plans. This ANC is composed entirely of registered nurses (RNs).

In Vietnam, the medic's job was to treat and evacuate. Medevac helicopters now could bring medics on board to continue treating the wounded while transporting them back to the Field Hospitals. There was a 98% survival rate for soldiers who were evacuated within the first hour. Vietnam was the first time medics were armed and carried firearms and grenades into combat. Red crosses on helmets and arm bands were no longer worn.

The United States Air Force Medical Service (AFMS) consists of the five distinct medical corps of the Air Force and enlisted medical technicians. The AFMS was created in 1949 after the newly independent Air Force’s first Surgeon General, Maj. General Malcolm C. Grow (1887–1960), convinced the United States Army and President Harry S. Truman that the Air Force needed its own medical service.

In the summer of 1949, Air Force General Order No. 35 established a medical service with the following officer personnel components: Medical Corps, Dental Corps, Veterinary Corps, Medical Service Corps, Air Force Nurse Corps, and Women's Medical Specialist Corps.

The AFMS is led by The Surgeon General of the Air Force, who holds the rank of lieutenant general. The AFMS is found in all three components of the Air Force, including the Active Air Force, the U.S. Air Force Reserve, and the Air National Guard. Headquartered at The Air Staff, Defense Health Headquarters, Falls Church, VA., AFMS senior leaders can be found in all of the Major Commands and in the Pentagon.
