African-American Women VN Veterans Wanted

Jeanne Giaimis at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey, is in the early stages of writing a book about African-American women who served in the military or in civilian jobs in Vietnam, Thailand, and Japan from 1954-75. “There have been no books written about this group, ” Giaimis told us, “and I would therefore as a historian like to share their stories as a part of American history.”

As “a member of the baby boom generation, I am aware that younger generations have very little knowledge of the Vietnam War, ” said said. “I would like to do my part to see that this chapter in our history is not forgotten.”

If you fit the bill and would like to be a part of the book, contact Giaimis at 201-675-6465 (cell); 973-353-3557 (work); or by email:

If you do, tell her you read about her work right here at VVA’s Arts of War on the Web page.
