SECOND LIEUTENANT ELIZABETH ANN JONES

AND

SECOND LIEUTENANT CAROL ANN DRAZBA

Second Lieutenant Elizabeth Ann Jones’ mother had recently mailed a wedding dress to her in Vietnam.

Jones, whom a neighbor told The Associated Press had a “ zest for life,” was planning to marry a man she had met after arriving months earlier to serve as an Army nurse.

But on 18 February 1966, Jones and her fiancé were both killed in a helicopter crash near Saigon.

Her colleague, Second Lieutenant Carol Ann Drazba, also perished.

The two women, both 22, were the first American female service members to lose their lives in the Vietnam War.

Memorial Day 2021

This year, as every year for many, my wife finishes the wreaths she makes for every Memorial Day and our American flag is raised in remembrance, as we observe this somber national holiday. You and our loved ones whose names also are inscribed on the Vietnam Memorial are in our hearts. My family and I will never forget the cost of our freedoms, and the men and women who have and continue to step forward to keep America safe.
With respect, always.
