Nancy Grove

Having completed 7 years of service in Korea and Germany, Nancy Grove was no stranger to Army Special Services. Upon her arrival home from Germany, Grove was shocked by the dishonorable treatment Vietnam veterans were receiving, so, when Grove was given orders to report to Vietnam, she was ready and eager to help the soldiers. Due to her experience, Grove was the leader of three service clubs in Da Nang, Saigon, and Pleiku from 1972-1973. Because Americans were readying to leave Vietnam from 1972-1973, Grove was also tasked with shutting down many of the Service Clubs. From years of exposure to war and her dad dying shortly after she returned home, Grove was emotionally destroyed for years after Vietnam. Grove speaks to her recovery from Vietnam, both mentally and physically, and the life long impact the war has had on her.
