A very well written article about a very special person to all of us that served in combat in Vietnam. I remember her name well, and especially hearing the sound of her voice. Some people just happen to be born with a great deal of empathy for their fellow human species. Chris Noel was one of those people. She gave herself without reservations, in return she earned the love and respect of those precious lives she touched. Just remember the soldiers didn't start the war, the politicians did that. Chris realized that from the beginning. Through her efforts many young men found the strength to overcome many of the obstacles that they faced in their peacetime world. Thanks for a great article, and most of all best wishes to a very special, caring lady that helped a lot of young combat soldiers return to normal life.

This story happened to pop in the ELVIS Presley forum which I frequent....and since my hubby served in Vietnam...(Airforce Commandos) the story caught my eye. A very nice article about a very good person. I will be sure to show it to my husband.

The world (and our soldiers) needs more Bob Hopes and Chris Noels.
