Proud Moment: New Marine recruits attired in their odd (note the footwear) Navy uniforms were congratulated by Major Brewster Rhoades after being completing their indoctrination training. Behind Major Rhoades are Capt. Herbert W. Underwood, USN, Lt. Cmdr. Lester R. Reiter, USN, and Lt. John Doran. Commissioned February 9, 1943, the proud smile of the cadet crossing the steps of Abbey Chapel says it all.(40)
