People with guns collection # 34

"WASHINGTON, AUG. 27-- NEVA GETS HER GUN -- Miss Neva Hesley (above) of Hollidaysburg, Penna., cocks an eye to examine the revolver issued to her and three other woman guards at the Treasury Building today. Formerly the girl guards were unarmed. Neva keeps in mind the sign on the wall behind her." Aug 29 1943

I wonder if Neva got to keep her job. Probably like many women that served on the homefront during the war she was replaced later on when G.I.s began returning from overseas. Either way she served her nation when she was needed and that's something to be proud of, and not to change the subject but that's a nice collection of 4-Inch Colt .38s.
