Sergeant Christine C. Odom (Chevron, 7/04) said of We are Marines, “Even though women were given this opportunity, they still weren’t allowed to do many things during their enlistments. Mary Sabourin, a retired sergeant major, mentioned in one of her stories that women weren’t required to qualify with a rifle or authorized to wear trousers. Each chapter highlights a particular era, starting when women were fi rst allowed to enlist. Also, the chapters list facts, names and other information about prominent women in the Marine Corps during each era.
