Color Illustration; This is an oblong paperback book with a stapled spine. The covers have some light waviness and the rear cover has a couple of small patches of biopredation. The text pages are clean and bright, but there is some light waviness throughout. The table of contents page has an ink stamped U. S. Army Recruiting Station address. This is a wonderfully nostalgic look at an Army recruitment booklet for the Women's Army Corp. (WAC or WAAC) From 1962. "The WAAC was modeled after comparable British units, especially the ATS, which caught the attention of Chief of Staff George C. Marshall. [7] Members of the WAC became the first women other than nurses to serve within the United States Army. [8] In 1942, the first contingent of 800 members of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps began basic training at Fort Des Moines Provisional Army Officer Training School, Iowa. The women were fitted for uniforms, interviewed, assigned to companies and barracks and inoculated against disease during the first day. " (from Wikipedia)
