Thank goodness, these types were in the minority and prejudice of any kind is self-destruc- tive. History has proved the worth of the Military Woman. ) Gals, I'm happy to report to you that on that day when my companion in misery and I were assigned to clean that grease trap, we did ourselves proud.
