People with guns collection # 22 - Originally posted Sunday, January 31, 2010

From my own personal collection!"GIRLS IN U.S. COLLEGE RECEIVE MILITARY TRAINING

These young girls are members of the Women's Auxiliary Training Corps, an organization for the voluntary training of American college girls in military tactics, courtesy and discipline. They belong to the first unit of the WATC, formed at the University of Indiana in the U.S. Midwest. The WATC, whose members wear bright red uniform coats and white flannel skirts, is similar in organization and routine to the Reserve Officers Training Corps, which prepares men students in American Colleges for commissions in the Army.

Here an ROTC officer explains the workings of a machine gun.

Any girl who could run a Browning Heavy .30 is a girl to take home to the family!
