This is the first I’ve ever heard of my mother planning to join the Marines. Her brother was in the Army at the time, I believe. I guess everyone was gung ho to help the war effort in those days but I just can’t see my mother in the Marines.She must have known someone else who was in the Marines or planning to go into the Marines.
