Pat Bond, actress, talks about her experiences in the Women's Army Corps as a lesbian in 1945 -- why she joined, the difficulties of being queer in the military (and subsequent witch hunt), how her attitudes towards the army and government changed, and how she wanted to join the Communist movement in San Francisco.
