Approximately 11,000 US women were stationed in Vietnam during the conflict; nearly all were volunteers, and 90% were military nurses. Others were physicians, air traffic controllers, intelligence officers, clerks and other positions, in all the uniformed services. An unknown number of civilian women served with the Red Cross, USO, Catholic Relief Services and other humanitarian organizations, or as correspondents for newspapers and other media. Not all survived, and many developed PTSD.
