Ace Tail-Gunner: Memoirs of A U.S. Army Combat Nurse in Vietnam

Lynn Hampton, Author Daring Pub. Group $29.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-938936-94-7
``Tail-Gunner'' Hampton--she earned the sobriquet for her skill at giving injections--served at Tuy Hoa and Long Binh evacuation hospitals in 1967 and 1968, leaving Vietnam shortly after the Tet offensive. Her comments about civilian attitudes toward the conflict in Southeast Asia are acerbic: ``America was no longer worthy of her sons.'' Back in the States, she worked in a veterans' hospital where, she complains, many of the staff members used drugs and patients received third-rate care. Rediscovering her religious convictions, she went to Haiti and El Salvador as a medical missionary. In 1985 she became involved in a POW movement and returned to Vietnam to advertise a reward for freed prisoners. A resilient and caring individual, Hampton has written a forceful affirmation of America's traditional values. (Sept.)
