I am looking for Pants for the Womens Army uniform, but cannot find them anywhere. :pinch: Any suggestions, or alternate ideas??? I found the top at an Antique store, and picked it up for a resonable price, but have been looking for pants since Christmas :ermm:

Here are war photos of the Tiger Lady, wife of the C.O. of the 44th Vietnamese Ranger Bn. Maj. Dan. She was a decorated Sgt. who went on operations with the Bn. Her motherly ability to gain information from captured V.C. definitely save lives. She was killed by her husband after she found out that he was having an affair. Notice the pearl handle 45 that she carried.

This was taken in early 1970 in QuangTri ... I took them on an expedition to Hue and the Citadel ... and on to visit GiaLong's tomb. Didn't taken them along my extended tour because of the apparent danger ... they were too new in-country. Picture and text by Chris Banigan.

The hospital at Quang Tri Combat Base was the 18th Surg.

I was at Quang Tri 69-70.

Thank you for posting all the nurse photos. Nurses are our heroes. Luckily I was never wounded so I never got to meet one during the war, but I still love them.
