Happy anniversary to Company 3086, RTCW Orlando. We graduated 38 years ago today: 27 Jul 1973.
If you want to see a neat film of women at RTCW Orlando, check out “Ladies Wear the Blue (1974) – Parts 1, 2, and 3 on Youtube. Part 2, at about the 7-1/2 minute mark, starts with women arriving at RTC Orlando, and it continues to their passing in review at graduation in part 3.
It includes Company 3072 marching (singing “Here Comes the Navy” among other songs).
There are women in “WAVES” uniforms: the recruit uniform, summer light blues, and the dress white uniform that we wore at graduation. It really brought it all back – I sang along to Here Comes the Navy and was surprised to find that I still know all the lyrics!
Happy anniversary to our CC Muriel Christian and to Company ’86, wherever you all may be!

Gladys served her country from December 1943 until February 1947 as an Air Traffic Controller, stationed in Norfolk, VA.
