“Round Eyes” by Diane Klutz:
The year was 1969 — Woodstock, free love, peace marches and war. Life was unpredictable at best, but that didn’t stop twenty-year-old Diane Mumper from going after her dream of adventure. She envisioned herself as Cherry Aimes, Army Nurse and watched the movie Mash till memorized. Soon to graduate from nursing school, she joined the Army Nurse Corps, and six months later she began her own journey. Often comical and frequently cynical, Diane’s stories describe her experiences from basic training through duty in one of the most deadly war zones in South Vietnam. Along the way, she faces a truth about herself and the war far different than she ever expected.
This is a no punches pulled account of a young girl becoming a women in Vietnam … I am a 100% disabled Vietnam veteran who is writing this only because of these Angels in green…God bless you all … Thank you.
Fantastic true story
Diane is a friend of mine, so my review may gush a bit. I’m very proud of her. But my admiration for Diane’s wonderful writing style is honest. This is a true story of a young woman serving her country and the warriors of my generation in Vietnam. I would recommend this book to everyone. It’s factual, honest and at times quite funny. We see this brutal war from a different angle in this book. Buy it.
The author of this book has a great sense of humor. I can’t believe I actually laughed out loud multiple times. This book was much different than all the other books I have read about the Vietnam War.
Quick read enjoyed her journey. Thanks to her for sharing her thoughts and experiences. Theirs was much like the soldiers in battle.
Every nurse’s experience is different. Well written. I respect every contribution of every nurse that served. Thank you ladies.
Dr. Klutz’s book kept me in awe, inspired, amazed, saddened, & humored! I now understand more about the wonderful and caring Dr. Klutz that I have met & briefly gotten to know. Such a young age to grow up so fast as an officer and nurse in a war. And, I have decided that George had to have been from Texas! This book is a must read!
Because I really have a spot in my heart for the Nurses of Vietnam. The one called Ginny was as beautiful as the woman I married when I got back to the world. This coming June we will have been married 51 years. My tour was 68/69. When in the Hospital the Nurses and doormen were the greatest.
Diane’s book is about her trials and tribulations of her life experiences as a medical nurse in and during the Vietnam War. It’s a book that shows the selfless service to those in need – our active service men who fought and sacrificed so much throughout the Vietnam War. The stories touch your heart and make you think about “what would I do”? During the reading of the book my subconscious kept telling me that Diane’s nursing during the war was like an angel from the heavens. Thank you for your service. Thank you for everyone you helped during their time of great need. Thank you for writing the book! A must read for those desiring to become a servant leader.
