Interview with Judy Varley

What was your routine generally on the march, as a medical person?


When the march fell into line every morning, ah, well before the march fell into line and we had our breakfast, such as it was, very likely, ah, again, bologna sandwiches and tepid Kool-Aid, one more time, ah, we would hold clinic, a very brief half hour, hour clinic, and people with minor ailments and broken blisters on their feet and so on would come in and we'd pass out, ah, salt tablets as the march took off and grabbed the ambulance at the end of the march. Medical people never were up front with the news cameras. They were always from the middle to the very end of the line of march because, ah, that's where they were needed. You needed to be there to pick up stragglers and wait for the ambulance, if that's what was needed and, ah, ah, get your first aid or your, ah, ah, whatever and, ah, your Kaopectate, and, ah, then rejoin the line of march. Ah, we took turns marching and riding in the ambulance, the van, and, ah.
