Honoring Our Veterans: Dolly Donut in Korea

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Royal Oak Public Library
Friends Auditorium

Event Details

Join Joann Puffer Kotcher, who served as a Donut Dolly with the Red Cross in Korea for 14 months just after the 1952 cease fire. Donut Dollies operated clubmobiles equipped with kitchen facilities and donut making machines to give soldiers a taste of home and boost morale. Joann had four duty stations and saw the four seasons of the year from Pan Mun Jom and the DMZ, to Che Ju Island. The troops endured boredom, loneliness, and homesickness. Even worse was the stress of sitting next to North Korea, where the cease fire could be broken at any time. Infiltrators attacked without warning, and the war was never far away.
