Laugh, Cry, and Remember: The Journal of a G.I. Lady

Front Cover
Texas Tech University Press, 1991 - History - 218 pages
Laugh, Cry and Remember is the personal experience of a kid from Brooklyn, a civilian-soldier during World War II, who found herself on that stony uphill path where the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps (later the Women's Army Corps) was the unwitting vanguard for women's liberation. Initially occupied with drawing secret maps, charts and graphs, Pollard became a poster designer and publicity person for recruitment while fighting the battle of heartache at the sight of men torn from hearth and home. The narrative unfolds from enlistment day through many posts, with Pollard's laughter and tears exemplifying the commitment of those soldiers who, as members of the first permanent female army, changed forever women's roles in the defense of our nation.
