Life women

Life put up some fantastic WWII pictures about the better half and their part in the war, and we can’t help but share them!

Which ones are your favorite?  I for one want a pair of those gunner’s sunglasses immediately.

    I love the one where the woman is holding a gun that looks longer than she is tall! Oh, and the Finnish woman in her fur coat holding binoculars up to her eyes.
