This is a group of photos, newspaper clippings and paper work I picked up a while back that belonged to a Woman Marine. Elinor Joyce Christie enlisted in the USMC(W) in 1949 and reported to Parris Island, S.C. on 15 Sept. 1950. From there she was assigned to Hq. Sg. MCAS, Cherry Point, N.C. in Nov. 1950. Her Next assignment was to MAD, NATTC, Memphis, T.N. in Sept. 1951 where she attended a 16 week course and was the first ever woman marine to be stationed at that base. From there she went back to MCAS Cherry Point, N.C.
I'll start with the photos in the lot and post up the rest of the stuff as I find time to scan it.

This image is dated 1949
