Women Recruits Choose Training in Army Air Force
Lieutenant Dorothy Laurie Grimm of the WAC Recruiting Office, 509 Union National Bank in Eau Claire, said today that the United States Army Air Force is the branch of the Army most popular with women now joining the Women’s Army Corps. Even though it is possible for women serving with the Army Ground and Service Forces to choose the Army post in the Sixth Service Command in which to work, they still prefer to take their chances on a station and have the thrill of working at an air base. Being an Air WAC does not allow a woman to choose her station, but she may be recommended for a certain job and prove herself capable of holding that job. The qualifications necessary to become an Air WAC are no different than for any other branch of the Army.
It has recently been announced that WACs assigned to the Army Air Forces will get the same technical training as men. Women chosen for the courses will go to Chanute Field, IL or Lowry Field, CO. Women must be recommended by their station commanding officers. This recommendation will be based upon experience, previous training, demonstrated ability, and tests.
