Cheeking Air Force Officers in Unk Trainers spirit that won tfie Army A t AIR FORCE OFFICER came in for his routine checkup and was surprised to find a Wac in charge of the Link Trainer. "Why, that's no work for a wo'man!" he said. "I've been trained for it, sir," the Wac answered with a •mile, "And if I can't do it, I don't belong in this man's Army." This Wac spirit isn't just one of brag or pride in the Corp*. It's a spirit of confidence. For the WAC hasn't been given jobs, it has won the right to do them. When the WAC was first organized, there were only four jobs the Army thought women could handle. But the WAC rolled up its sleeves and showed the Army what women can do. Job by job, they demonstrated their aptitude, their earnestness, and courage. And the four jobs grew into 239. Today, wherever you find a Wac on the job, you find a job well done. G.I. Joe say* it. The Colonel says it. And the General gays, "I wish we had a million more Wacst" Sending combat orders to bomber crews Good soldiers...
