UNIFORM | The South Pacific

Photo of unknown military personnel on Fassarie Isle, Ulithi Atoll by Carl Mydans for LIFE.

Being currently in Hawaii and having just finished the book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption, I keep looking at the ocean and the islands trying to imagine them 70 years ago when the world was at war and incredible and horrific things were happening on tiny islands all over the Pacific. Finding photos of women in uniform during WWII has always struck a chord, especially this one. I just wish I knew more about her.
