When the message of an American military success flashes thru, i one may be sure that this message | has been preceded by many others in the vast undertaking represent-I ed by our world-wide striking force.
i It is obvious that success depends on the right troops being in the right place at the right time and with the right equipment. A single operation will have required that countless messages flow quickly aijd accurately, seeing to it that the least detail is duly ordered and arranged for.
At key points of this vital communications system which spans the entire world are found alert and conscientious Wacs, keeping that system functioning accurately, sending and receiving the mes-ages of war.
So outstanding has the work of these members of the Women's Army corps been that many more requests for additional Wacs came in than can be filled from the WAC's present enrollment. The answer to this problem is obvious. Every American woman who is
qualified to do so should give careful consideration to the question of joining the WAC. There are 239 different types of jobs to choose from. Bach of them is important to victory. Each of them needs the alert mind and skilled hands of American women.
