Happy Anniversary, Women Marines!

 

 

 

The Marine Corps OFFICIAL Birthday for all Marines still remains November 10. However,  Women Marines “in every clime and place”  like to acknowledge Feb 13 as the anniversary of the establishment of the United States Marine Corps Women’s Reserve during WWII.   Today marks the 71st Anniversary since women began serving in the United States Marine Corps during WWII. This photo is of an anniversary celebration that took place in 1945.

  1. My mother-in-law served during WWII. She was posted in Washington DC at Henderson Hall. Her mom saved all her letters home and we have created a book out them and some photos from her time in the Corps.
