Shots!

June 29, 2012

The Navy gave each  boot a battery of shots (all the women we’ve talked with remember them). That experience is featured in both photographs and comics like this image.

It comes from Marjorie Sue Green’s booklet From Recruit to Salty WAVE! The Ordeal of Seaman Green held by The Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project at the University of North Carolina Greensboro.
