    The exceptionally well told story of a Woman Marine Reservist in

    The exceptionally well told story of a Woman Marine Reservist in 1943 as she trains to be a Marine and then serves at her duty station.  Gives a wonderful insight into the United States at the time and the way the war affected our society.
