More Washington High DC School Cadet Corps

Early I wrote a post about the Washington High DC School Cadet Corps.

A few months ago while performing research at the Martin Luther King Library in downtown Washington DC, I came across several photos of  Washington High DC School Cadet Corps.  I was surprise to find a photo of a female cadet corps since  everything I read about the cadet corps indicated it was for males only.

I decided to post them here to compliment my earlier post.
