From civilian to soldier

Click any image to enlarge
This is a 1942 series of photos of George Camblair being inducted into the army and undergoing training. I tried to find out what happened to him, but had no luck in my search. I did quite like the touch that he got the pretty girl in the end. I wonder if he used the ol' "I don't want to die a virgin" line on her?

I found the pictures at Flashbak's The Making Of A GI: One Man’s Journey From Working Stiff To Man Of War (1942). There are more after the jump, and of course more at the Flashbak link.
