The WAAC was formed today!


Recommended Posts

On this day 15 May 1942 , the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) was formed, and on July 1st 1943 converted to an active duty status unit in the Army of the United States as the Women's Army Corps (WAC). This was was the women's branch of the United States Army. Its first director was Oveta Culp Hobby, a prominent woman in Texas society. The WAC was disbanded in 1978, and all units were integrated with male units. Remember these brave women!
