Vietnam Veteran & Nurse: “We Are Not Baby Killers”

VICTORIA JACKSON SHOW

Captain Donna Rowe was the head E.R. nurse in Saigon during the Vietnam War. In 1969 she saved the life of an injured newborn Vietnamese orphan by disobeying orders. A series of events led to their reunion more than 30 years later. The baby, Kathleen is now married with four children and living in CA. A movie was made about it and you can find it here – http://www.intheshadowoftheblade.com. I am in awe of our military heroes, their bravery and honor. I salute Captain Donna Rowe, all of our Vietnam Vets, and all veterans, those who sacrificed all for the protection, defense and freedom of our country and even for others abroad.

    My Marine enlistment ended as that war started. I ignored the “protesters” aka Kommies in college as study, marriage & work kept me busy.

    But the sight of those poor troops abused by the scum of the earth, kommiecrats (but I repeat myself) still bothers me.

    In 1969 I was a sophomore in college with an Army Nurse scholarship. Graduated in 1972 and served 20 years proudly. When I was in 2nd grade my Dad was a patient in an Army hospital and it was then that I decided I wanted to be an Army nurse. I never waivered once on that decision. (Of course it helped that my husband was in the Army!) Thank-you Captain Rowe for paving the way.

    Even to this day DH doesn’t get any respect for serving his country in Viet Nam nor my brother – only from other veterans. Thank you for posting this wonderful story and your high fives to them.

    When I see or hear “Baby killers” I always think of those creepy late term abortionists and unfit parents.
    I wish hippies did, too.

    Let me wipe the tears from my eyes first…
    Okay.

    In 1969 I was nine years old but remember the war very well. It was on the news every night. The Mi Lai Massacre was a hot topic then. I still regarded our serice members as heros enough to enlist in 1979. Most NCOs and Officers senior (time in service) to me WERE Viet Man Vets. They will always be tops in my book!
