Henderson Hall in Arlington, VA has the distinction from 1943 to 1946 of being the only Marine base compound made up entirely of Women Marines with a woman Commanding Officer. In 1944, Nona J. Hall Johnson enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps Womens Reserve and left Wayne, Nebraska to serve her country. After boot camp at Camp LeJeune, NC, she was stationed at Henderson Hall from 1944 through 1946. This is a story of Nona's life as a Womens Marine Corporal, on-duty at HQ, U.S. Marine Corps and off-duty in the barracks. With this book, you will relive the times when America was at its most "innocent," filled with attitudes and character that came from growing up in small towns in middle-America and carried into the center stage of a great world war effort to make the world safe again (from www.northbooks.com)
