Yep folks, that's my beautiful mother in 1958, at the Presidio in San Francisco, California. She was just 20 years old. She entered the Women's Army Corps [WAC's] in 1958. Took her training at Fort McClellan, Alabama, and then went on to the Presidio at San Francisco as a clerk.
In the fall of that year, she met a Navy sailor, also stationed at San Francisco. They dated for a very few months, and were married in December.
Just a couple of months later, she was discharged from the military as she was expecting her first child, [at that time, if you were expecting it was an automatic discharge]. That child was none other than the Texicanwife. So, I guess you could say I cut short my mother's military career!
Any way, isn't she a beauty???
