WWII female Marine ID

Recommended Posts

This is a June 1945 photo of what is identified as an E7 female Marine, looking for confirmation as to the identification? Would an E7 female be called a Gunny back in WWII? post-49620-0-81794100-1563229592_thumb.jpg

That is not a Woman Marine. She is a WAC and her rank is Technical Sergeant. Marines did not wear collar disks during WWII.

I agree this is a WAC not a Marine. The collar disc instead of EGA is the give away.

 

Bruce, I think you meant to say Marines did not wear collar discs.

And just for the record, in 1945 there was no such thing as an "E-7", she was a Tech Sgt. which was in the 2nd grade. The pay grade numbering system in use today didn't come along till about 1947 or so.
