In 1962, the U.S. Army briefly had the idea that they should use a cheesecake spokesmodel to recruit young men into service. That same year, future cult film & TV actress Francine York became Miss All-American Girl U.S. Army Recruiter. Her mission: to provide autographed pin-up photos to a “Valley group of Army inductees called the Buddy Group,” be their pen pal, give them a Hollywood studio tour and to visit them at Ft. Ord while they were in training. The Buddy Group in the picture is identified (left to right) by the Los Angeles Public Library as Jerry Williams, Reseda;Jim Szeredy, Pacoima; Sgt. Leslie F. Zickefoose Jr., North Hollywood recruiter; John Kruse, North Hollywood, and Richard Eckols, San Fernando. (LAPL)

As for Francine York’s Hollywood career—well, if you watched TV in the 1960s, you definitely saw her. She was in Batman; Lost in Space; Burke’s Law; General Hospital; Wild, Wild West; Bewitched, etc.
