Bailey Steppe in the Navy

Boot Camp was at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center.

Here I am at the front door of the barracks.

A shipmate dressed for guard duty in the barracks. The non-functional rifles were used for drill and marching.

Recruits on shore leave in Chicago trying to decide if they want to visit the burlesque. That is me in the middle.

Waiting for the train to take us from Chicago back to the base.
