First SPAR to Set Foot on Overseas Soil

First SPAR to Set Foot on Overseas Soil

Phyllis Baguley of Lansing, Michigan, holds the honor of being the first SPAR to set foot on overseas soil. Pictured here as she suns herself on the boat deck of the former luxury liner that transported her overseas, she led the first overseas contingent of SPARs as they debarked from the ship at Honolulu.
