ABSTRACT
The article provides a historical overview of the Women's Army Corps (WAC). In 1943, the WAC was established as a separate entity of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps to give women more chance to take routine service and office jobs. According to the author, the WAC remained an accessory corps until the mid-1970s when the U.S. draft ended and changes began to occur. The WAC has served in the Korean and Vietnam wars before it was disestablished in 1978. The author also discusses the challenges and prejudices faced by the WAC throughout its existence.
