Women of WWII Magnet Set 8 Pc.
Women of World War 2 - 8 piece mini magnet set.
During World War II, posters like these encouraged women to contribute to
the war effort: to join special divisions of the United States military
forces, to conserve resources at home, and to work in factories
performing the jobs of the men who had gone to war. The Women's Army
Corp (WAC), created in 1942 as the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC),
was the women's branch of the United States Army. General Douglas
MacArthur called the WACs "my best soldiers," adding that they worked
harder, complained less, and were better disciplined than men. Other
branches of the U.S. military had similar women's units: the Navy WAVES,
the Coast Guard SPARS and the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP).
