It’s been 50 years since thousands of young American women served their country in Vietnam, and their stories have remained largely untold… until now. Based on the true accounts of five extraordinary women, ‘In Their Footsteps’ explores the experiences of women working in war zones, their struggles to be recognised heroes, their loss of faith, and the friendships they forged in the face of trauma. This deeply moving, time-travelling piece brings us a better understanding of the Vietnam experience from a uniquely female perspective. It tells us of jobs that have been long overlooked, particularly of civilian jobs in the war that receive, not only no fanfare but no recognition of service either. It reminds us of the long-term pain, horrors, and specifically the health implications of serving your country during the Vietnam War.
