WAC Reaches
Third Birthday
'Good Soldiers' Hold 239
War Jobs on Fighting Fronts
Born the WAAC on May 14, 1942,
the Women's Army Corps celebrated
its third i birthday Monday, and
members are now performing 239
important war jobs at Army posts
throughout the country and wher-
ever else there are American troops-
England, France, Italy, Egypt, India,
Australia, New Guinea and Hawaii.
WACs don't shoot guns, but they
do check the equipment fighters
use. They don't fly planes, but
they do gide airmen home by
radio landing instructions. They
ton't risk their lives in the front
lines, but they do keep the world-
wide network of Allied communi-
cations open. They are soldiers,
not only technically as when the
"A" for Auxiliary was dropped in
September, 1943, but actually be-
cause they have proved themselves
invaluable in jcbs that are indis-
pensable to a modern-warfare vic-
tory. "Good soldiers", is what Ar-
my men say when they speak of
members of the WAC.
Nearly 18 per cent of the WAC is
serving overseas; some of them land-
ed on Normandy beaches only a
little more than a month after D-
Day, others arrived on Leyte a month
and seven days after the first inva-
sion force hit the beach, and an
incredibly short time after American
fighting men had won the bitter fight
at Anzio, WACs were manning a
mobile switchboard set up in a truck
on the beach.
Many WACs wear the Purple
Heart for injuries received in
bombing attacks. Eight have been
awarded the Legion of Merit; 26
have earned the Bronze Star; five
rate the Soldier's Medal for per-
sonal heroism, and Col. Oveta Culp
Hebby, director of the WAC, holds
the Distinguished Service Medal,
third highest Army decoration.
TheWomen's Army Corps is still
accepting recruits, especially women
interested in serving as medical tech-
nicians. Senior women who can fin-
ish their college training in 120 days
may enlist now and be deferred until
the end ;f their college career, pro-
vided they can meet general enlist-
ment requirements.
