Did you know that the majority of Freedmen's Bureau records are now digitized and available online for free, as well as the records of other institutions that served newly-freed African Americans during Reconstruction? Angela Walton-Raji and Toni Carrier have built a new website called "Mapping the Freedmen's Bureau - An Interactive Research Guide" (www.mappingthefreedmensbureau.com) to assist researchers in locating and accessing records of the Freedmen's Bureau, Freedmen's hospitals, contraband camps and Freedman's Bank branches. Researchers can use the website's interactive map to learn which of these services were located near their area of research interest. If the records are online, the map provides a link to the records that tell the stories of newly-freed former slaves in the American south. The goal of this mapping project is to provide researchers, from the professional to the novice, a useful tool to more effectively tell the family story, the local history and the greater story of the nation during Reconstruction.
Angela Walton-Raji is an author, genealogist, guest lecturer and producer of the weekly African Roots Podcast and Toni Carrier is the Founder of LowcountryAfricana, a free website dedicated to African American genealogy and history in SC, GA and FL.

During the Vietnam War, Red Cross workers provided services to U.S. military personnel and assist Vietnamese refugees (1962-1974) In 1962, the American Red Cross sent its first paid field staff to Vietnam to assist the growing number of servicemen at various bases and hospitals. At the height of its involvement in 1968, 480 field directors, hospital personnel, and recreation assistants (Donut Dollies) served throughout Southeast Asia. Red Cross workers, who provided 1.9 million services to U.S. military personnel, shared the hardships and privations of war with the soldiers. Five Red Cross staff members gave their lives, and many others were injured as they helped servicemen resolve personal problems or get home when emergency leave was granted due to death or serious illness in their immediate family.
One of these volunteers is Barbara Lilly. Barbara graduated from Wayne State in Detroit (Masters much later at Texas State San Marcos) and then on to Vietnam. She served in VN 3/68 through 3/69. During that time she was assigned to Phan Rang, Lai Khe, Cam Ranh Army and II Field Forces. She also did TDY to Cam Ranh Air Force Base ... She had double pneumonia and it wasn't raining there so they sent her there once she got out of the hospital.

I am a native Texan and in 1990 I graduated from Southwest High School in Fort Worth, TX. After high school I went to MCRD San Diego, while in the Marine Corps I served as a Heavy Gunner in Weapons Company 3rd Battalion 1st Marines. While I was assigned to 3/1 I took and passed the Indoct for Recon. Upon completion of my deployment with 3/1 I went to 1st Recon Battalion where I served as a Point Man/Navigator in a six-man Recon Team and also as training cadre for Indocts and RIP Classes. I was honorably discharged from the Marines in ’96.After the Marines I got a job working on Commercial and Industrial Boilers and in 2004 one of the boilers I was working on exploded on me and I sustained a TBI and SCI C1-C6. I spent several years in recovery at places like Craig Institute in Colorado, Centre for Neuro Skills in California, several local hospitals and home. During this time I had to learn how to read and understand or comprehend what I just read as well as how to do math again. Not to mention many other life skills old and new that many of us take for granted on a daily basis.
