First, we’d like to apologize for our lack of posting to the Homefront Heroines community. But we’re back again, posting a photo a day about the WAVES and SPARS during World War II.
In this 1943 photo, SPARS commander Dorothy Stratton meets with some of her troops. It’s the anniversary of the founding of the Coast Guard today, so we thought this an appropriate way to wish them a Happy Birthday!
The photo comes from the US Coast Guard Archives.
Glad you’re back! The photos are marvelous. Thanks for sharing your research.
