During World War II, she worked as a truck driver and typist in the United States Marine Corps Women's Reserve, receiving an Honorable Discharge in September 1945.
The Marine Corps Women's Reserve was officially established on 13 February 1943...By the end of World War II, 85% of all enlisted U.S. Marine Corps personnel assigned to Headquarters were women. The MCWR was often referred to as the "Lady Marines"..

Ms. Arthur, we thank you for your service.
