Written with humor
and candor, So, What’s a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a
Place Like This? describes the experiences of a young girl
working for U. S. Army Special Services in Korea in 1964,
eleven years after a war and VietNam in 1967 during the war.
Dr. Davis witnessed the best and worst of human nature.
She was the belle of the ball in Korea, but barely escaped a
stalker, faced a soldier who broke into her hootch in
VietNam, survived routine mortar attacks, chopper flights,
and getting kicked out of the 1st Infantry Division. She met
generals, political dignitaries, and a future president of
the Philippines, but her best memories are of the young,
brave, polite, fun-loving, and appreciative soldiers to whom
she pays tribute. For them she would do it all again.
