New Collection of Women Marine Records at the National Archives

 It's National Women's History Month. Did you know that all the women recruits for the United States Marines Corps go through boot camp at Parris Island? 

   From the National Archives Catalog e-newsletter of March 9, 2017:

Records relating to the 1968 Marine Corps commemoration of 25 years of Marine women which included a yearlong celebration designed to honor women Marines, past and present. Included are official biographies and photographs of Marine women directors; and of the young, active duty Marine women representing each state, comprising the 1968 Governors' Platoon. Includes photographs digitized for online access.
