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).

250 sticky notes, approximately 4 x 6"

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
