"Oh for the Life of a Marine"

Katherine Mihelich, Daisy Radakovich and Rose Mihelich are three Pueblo women out of thousands who considered themselves “citizen soldiers” using their own talents in the war effort. Shown here, they baked just short of 2,000 pounds of cookies, candies and other sweets in March of 1942. The cookies and candies were air lifted overseas to air cadets, coast guardsmen, and soldiers to keep their spirits high.
