Hello,

That could signify she's retired ( or honorary ) ?

Hi Frank!

I notice first that the rank insignia consists of four stars above a chevron, all on a gold shoulder strap, which would indicate to me an officer of flag rank. Might this chevron be used in place of the wreath?

Could this rank possibly be that of a uniformed Party Official of some kind, or perhaps from another government agency where the personnel would wear a uniform?

Hi Chuck,
It looks to me like a Vietnamese Army uniform and there's no wreath on their generals' ranks.

Hello,

Yes, without doubt, it is a Vietnamese Army Uniform. But a General officer wears gold stars and button. She is more probably a Senior Captain ( four stars above a single stripe, all silver ). But, since I believe she's out of order for service , It can be problably a matter of sign to show that she's not on active list.

No, Erskine, no branch insignia is worn on their shoulder boards which go together with collar tabs which have those on.

Hi there. She is a specialist senior captain. Vietnamese specialist officer has chevron instead of stripe in his/her insignia.
