Description
A woman speaks or sings onstage to entertain the trainees, either in the Fort Ord Soldier's Club or a venue in a nearby town. Fort Ord, where Williams was sent for basic training in 1950-51, was a United States Army post in Monterey, California. Used for military training beginning in 1917, the post became a Fort in 1941 and remained so until 1994. During the Korean War, Fort Ord was home to the 6th Infantry Division.
