Women of WWII Sticky Notes

During World War II, war production had to increase dramatically in a short amount of time. Women were needed because companies were signing large contracts with the government just as all the men were leaving for the service. The government launched a propaganda campaign to sell the importance of the war effort and to lure women into working. They promoted the fictional character of "Rosie the Riveter" as the ideal woman worker; loyal, efficient, patriotic, and pretty.

The Women's Army Corps (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).

Challenge Coin

I was very pleased with the quality of the coin.


I really liked the tee shirt's color and design. However, the size was too small for me. I normally wear a large. I don't know why it was so tight. Perhaps it was the material from which it was made (polyester).

Not signed no communication from the store

I left the rating at a 5 cuz the book is great but don’t think it’s coming from the store signed as indicated or that you’ll be able to get ahold of anyone I have sent 3 emails and still nothing.
