Apr 17: Capt Sandra Smith to Present at Kitsap County Historical Society

Sandra SmithOur Bremerton-Olympic Peninsula Council will sponsor Captain Sandra Smith, USN (ret) as the speaker for the Kitsap County Historical Society on April 17.  The Historical Society is focusing on women in history and has asked Captain Smith to share some of her stories as an early female Naval Officer.  Her presentation will be at the Museum at 280 Fourth Street in Bremerton.

Among her many experiences, Captain Smith remembers that when she entered the Navy, females wore pinstripe suits. Trousers were not allowed.  She was part of the team that developed a white paper on uniforms that allowed for more options.  She also has some wonderful stories of what she could or could not do.

We know hat Sandra will keep us entertained and we are delighted to be a part of this series honoring women.
