<p>Page 15 wedding dress image</p>
Caption: This wedding dress is made of French satin from Vietnam. Navy corpsman Mike O’Shea left Vietnam on June 17, 1965, after serving one year in-country. He married Hospitalman Beverly Ann Katz two months later at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Marshall, Michigan. Beverly made this dress from the fabric Mike purchased in Saigon. When she walked down the aisle of the church to meet Mike at the altar, their war in Vietnam was over. Their Navy’s war was just beginning. (Gift of Mrs. Beverly O’Shea)
