Can you imagine being a woman in her early to mid-20's that was able to join the military and go overseas to serve her country? Why did she do it? Adventure? To support the war effort? To help heal her heart after the death of a father, brother, fiancé or husband? To travel to foreign lands? Women served for all of these reasons and many more. When the U.S. joined the war at the end of 1941, the armed forces were beginning programs for volunteer female forces. In the Army it was originally called the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) and then by the end of 1943, the Auxiliary was dropped and it was simply WAC as it was officially incorporated into the Army. The WACs now had the same rights and benefits of enlistment as men. The Navy had the Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES). Today's Air Force was part of the Army in those days and they had the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). Women in the U.S. Coast Guard were called SPARS. The Marine Corp had a branch of female volunteers called "Marinettes," the Marine Corp Women's Reserve. There were also nurses in the armed forces and Red Cross workers. The purpose of these volunteer organizations was to fill every possible job that could be filled to release a man for duty. If a woman could be trained to handle a job as a parachute rigger, nurse, recruiter, weather person, office worker, dental assistant, munitions worker, and ferrying planes, she could replace a man who could be sent to the front to fight. Women who joined these volunteer organizations were sent to basic training camps where they learned to march and drill, handled KP duty, learned the use of gas masks and other equipment. After basic training, some were sent for additional training where they were specially trained in certain areas. These included medical, dental, machinery, or other areas before being given an official assignment. After training was over, they were shipped off to duty elsewhere in the U.S. where they were needed. Some women did go overseas. In those theatres of war, they served as nurses, office assistants, parachute riggers, weather women, and any other job that needed to be filled.

Chemical warfare has been used for well over a hundred years. During the invasion of Shanghai, these Japanese naval landing forces wore protective gear to prevent poisoning from gas. - - - - - - - Follow my partner @history_of_world_war_one for history about WW1.
