(Part of the Veterans History 20th Anniversary)

Written by Cindy Morgan and Navy veteran Kimberly Mitchell, "Precious Pearl" tells the story of Mitchell, who was found as a baby on the roadside, clinging to the body of her deceased mother during the Vietnam War. A South Vietnamese Marine carried her to the Sacred Heart Orphanage in Da Nang, where she was adopted by a U.S. Airman and brought back to Wisconsin from where she dedicated her life to service.
