WWII Veteran Audrey Tracy Interview

Listen to this interview  with WWII Veteran Audrey Tracy in Orlando, FL June 6th, 2010, D-Day.

 

Veteran Tracy served in the U.S. Marine Corps in WWII and worked at Marine Headquarters in Washington, DC. She was one of a select group of women who enlisted to serve their country and “Free a Marine to Fight”. These women took on responsibilities in the military so men could go to combat and fight.

She remembers the impressive military funerals at Arlington Cemetery and the sadness of seeing so many lives lost. Veteran Tracy was on base at Henderson Hall when the news broke that the war was over on August 14th, 1945 and recalls the excitement of getting a bus to Washington and celebrating with everyone in front of the White House.

She is thankful for our wonderful country and believes when we come together as in WWII we can do anything.
