Peggy Tuxen-Akers – Warriors for Peace Profile

Peggy Tuxen-Akers is a former Viet Nam nurse and member of the Maine Chapter of Veterans for Peace. This is her Warriors for Peace: Veterans Speak profile. Her perspective on the Viet Nam war is quite different from those of the guys who killed and were killed in the rice paddies and jungles of Viet Nam. Peggy’s poem at the very end is sure to bring a tear to one’s eye.

    I was mesmerized by Peggy’s recollections of that sad Era some 50 years ago. I was also saddened by the lack of representation of younger people. Seems like war is an older man’s visceral remembrance (“Teach the children well”…) and a younger man’s untested horror. Thanks for this video Regis! Live Long and Prosper!

  • Kenneth Ashe

    Peggy’s story resonated with me because I was a DustOff crew-chief in Viet Nam and experienced the same profound sadness and helplessness that she spoke of. hers is an important story to be told and remembered. Thanks Regis for keeping the stories alive.
