Bobbi Hovis
Lieutenant Commander
USN (Ret.) Hovis was the first Navy nurse to volunteer to go to Vietnam in 1963. Her mission, to build a hospital in Saigon. She describes in detail what it was like when the coup d’état started on the streets as the city around her was being bombarded by shells and small-arms fire. Hovis narrowly escapes injury as a bullet smashes into the balcony she was on just a mere three inches from her chest.
