Scuttlebutt Extra: Judge Eileen Moore on Vietnam Veterans
Manage episode 349681532 series 3339032
Judge Eileen Moore served as a combat nurse in Vietnam in the Army Nurse Corp, where she was Lieutenant Eileen Moore. Following Vietnam she went to college, law school, practiced law for ten years, and ultimately was appointed as a judge to the superior court. She currently serves as Justice Moore on the California Court of Appeals.
Justice Moore does a great deal of work with veterans as they come through the court system and says her goal is to see that today's service members are not treated in the same despicable manner as were those who served in Vietnam.
She was the keynote speaker at our Veterans Day celebration this year and moved us with a poignant speech about Vietnam veterans that included unforgettable stories we had to share.
Here is her speech in its entirety.
