Proudly We Serve is an interesting tribute to the women in uniform
Just watched this short on the Hollywood Canteen DVD. In this one, a Marine soldier recounts to his buddies how he trained to be a fighter pilot under a woman he eventually falls for...What was interesting to watch was how this man thinks he knows all about what women are like by simply looking at the way they position themselves at various places around the restaurant before his female instructor, who knows them all personally, tells him what they really are. Obviously, the point was to depict how valuable women were to the armed forces and how worthy of respect they are. But that doesn't stop the director from having the leading lady also dress glamorously or appear in a one-piece swimsuit in a few scenes. Still, Proudly We Serve is worth a look for anyone interested in these rarities.
