So, What’s a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This? Seoul to Saigon
Written with humor and candor, So, What’s a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This? Seoul to Saigon describes the experiences of a young girl working for the U. S. Army in Korea in 1964, eleven years after the Korean War and in Vietnam in 1967 during the Vietnam war. Dr. Davis witnessed the best and the worst of human nature. She was the belle of the ball in Korea but barely escaped a stalker, faced a soldier who broke into her quarters one night, survived routine mortar attacks, chopper flights, and getting kicked out of the 1st Infantry Division. She met generals, political dignitaries and a future President of the Philippines, but her best memories are of the young, brave, polite, fun-loving, and appreciative soldiers to whom she pays tribute. For them she would do it all over again.
