Belmont Village Heros Barbara Kirk

Barbara Kirk

WAVE, U.S. Navy
Resident, Belmont Village San Jose, CA

“I always thought of my mother Barbara as daring. She and her younger sister Marge joined the Navy together, before WWII, by signing up under the ‘buddy system.’ They stayed through the duration of the war and they became enlistment emissaries because they were sisters.”
