Specials 2, Oh What an Ass Not to be on War Work

Women were recruited to serve in the army, navy, and air force. Those in the army wore Khakis just like men. The posters used to recruit women were glamorous, and several of those who enlisted envisioned an exciting life. However, a lot of the women who worked in the army ended up as drivers, mess hall workers, or working on anti-aircraft guns.

Those in the air force worked in radar stations, and as Air Transport Auxiliary, flying new airplanes to their respective airfields.
