Carole Visits The 87th Infantry

In June of 1943 Carole volunteered to tour a group of army camps in Mississippi. She sang for the soldiers, signed autographs, and met with patients in the hospital. When asked for her impressions of Mississippi she said "HOT! I can't decide which is hotter - Mississippi or Africa". Photos from Carole's visit to the 87th Infantry at Camp McCain were published in Acorn magazine. Thank you to Preston from the 87th Infantry Division Association for sharing these photos with us.
