YES, MA'M by Corporal Elizabeth R. Pollock


Email this review


Letters from a WAAC to her family and friends, that gives the personal picture behind the Nancy Shea The Waacs (see below). The author details all experiences from the train trip to Des Moines, the training, instructors, enlistees, the type of life, the various problems, the unusual incidents, the excitements of the many ""firsts"" the original Waacs hung up, the special training, the return to Philadelphia to be of active service, and the decision to enlist for Officer Training. It is an all-over picture of a typical auxiliary, more literate, more sensitive, perhaps, that omits no aspect of the first units and their pioneering. Interesting first report to civilians.
