1 Columbia Main Street, 1942 I see plenty of male soldiers…where are the females in service?

2 Here they come! Women were eager to serve their country’s armed forces during wartime, too…but how?

3 These Carolina girls found a way... Seaman 1st Class Geraldine Marie Houk. She served as teletype operator. Virginia “Gin” Owens entered the WAAC. She earned the title of “the Typical American Woman Soldier” and received national publicity.
