"We ran out of bandages one week and had to use the Stars & Stripes newspaper." (Audio interview, Tape 1, 18:18)

Born, raised, and trained to be a nurse in Indiana, Jeanne Urbin joined the U.S. Army in 1965 as a way of seeing the world. A year later, she got her wish when she married an officer who was about to ship out to Vietnam. The Army needed nurses to go to Southeast Asia, Jeanne didn't want to be separated from her husband Brian, and she soon found herself caring for wounded and ill soldiers in conditions far more primitive than the sterile confines of a Midwestern hospital.

Using VHP Material in Publication or Exhibition

The Veterans History Project (VHP) at the Library of Congress collects, preserves and makes accessible the firsthand recollections of U.S. military veterans who served from World War I through more recent conflicts and peacekeeping missions, so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand what they saw, did and felt during their service. The Veterans History Project Collection includes oral histories along with documentary materials such as original letters, diaries, photographs, and memoirs.

Veterans and interviewers contribute these materials to the Library for scholarly and educational purposes, retaining any copyright they may hold. Therefore, permission must be obtained before using the interview or other materials in exhibition or publication. Researchers or others who would like to make further use of these materials should contact the Veterans History Project for assistance.

As a publicly supported institution, the Library generally does not own rights to material in its collections. Therefore, it does not charge permission fees for use of such material and cannot give or deny permission to publish or otherwise distribute material in its collections. Responsibility for making an independent legal assessment of an item from the Library’s collections and for securing any necessary permissions rests with persons desiring to use the item.

Please contact us with questions.
