ailment ... we are -urged to. -The drill, about which most of usi
have griped at one time or. another, has made flabby muscles tauti
and has improved our general health. Plain, chow has improved
sated appetites and improved digestion. Athletic programs have
developed-a -sense of coordination and physical balance that was
entirely-lacking when we ,played games merely because it was the
thing to do, because it was fashionable.
S As- civilians;- we-were pretty apt :to consider only ourselves .'.
the every man for himself and the devil take the hindeimost"
policy. Where we gripe now .about little things, we complained in
a selfish manner. We squawled long and loud if the landlord was
inconsiderate enough to rent the-.apartment next door to someone
with children (nasty, crying things .. if we had none of our own).
We complained if he rented to someone who wasn't:quite the social
caliber we 'rated- ourselves. .
We threatened- to discontinue our patronage of the local grocer-
or butcher if -we weren't given the best for the least money. We
had no thought or consideration for anyone but ourselves and oui-
cwn selfish interests.
: In the service.-we have learned one of life's greatest and hardest
lessons. We have-learned to coordinate our desires with the interests
of the many. We have learned, to live .with each other sEad like it
.. .an impossible feat for women, many said when the corps was
organized. We have learned to do our best at whatever task w',e
were given because we couldn't let the company or battalion down.
We have truly learned the meaning of the term "service."
Where many have-made a financial sacrifice in joining the
WAAC, others are making more money than they ever did in eivi -
ian life. The pay dealt out the last day of each month may ndt-,
look like it did every -Saturday night when the "ghost walked" iji
civil life, but when the fact is considered that we pay no board or.
room, we pay nothing out for clothing, for medical and dental care,
for hospitalization when necessary, the money in the government
pay envelope looms mighty large. Many WAACs have had ailments
remedied since coming into the service that, while not incapacitat-
ing them for making a livelihood, lessened their efficiency and
general health. A survey of the dental work done for the WAAC'
during her first basic training days would run into surprising!
amounts of money if done by a civilian dentist on the outside.
True, many of us have given of ourselves in the service many
have made real sacrifices. We intended to when we signed- the ap-
Splication blank and the final papers when we had taken the oath
of service.- We cannot have lost any of. the patriotic zeal that made
us wait in line before recruiting offices, eager to enter the service;
of our country. Few enrolled because of mistaken ideas of being-a-
glamor girl in khaki. "It was not our purpose -then: it should not;
* be now that we have: learned'there is very little glamor in being:
a part of the-United States Army. i
It is a-great privilege we have, being able to serve along within
our men folks-in the fight-for freedom for all the- world. Women;
have fought for equal-rights with- men for the past. century. We
have won that right. Should we not with-equal'enthusiasm, fight
side-by-side thai our rights, and those of all peoples, be ours and,
the heritage of those who come after us.
Undoubtedly some will leave the corps. Some women,-despite
the rigidity of entrance qualifications, will have been found to be
"temperamentally unsuited" to a task so great as that for which
they pledged themselves. Some will have misjudged their ability
to take it. Many of those who leave the corps now will be no loss.
to the organization. It takes what-the conservativepersons will call
"intestinal fortitude" to stick it out when the going is rough. We,
think, in the parlance of the army, that most of the 756th WAAC;
Post Headquarters Company will have the "GUTS" to continue the
job begun and stick it out for.the duration and six mc(nths.

What's All The

Commotion About!

It's Moving Day

All the commotion at Seventh
Street and B Avenue last Sunday
and Monday was occasioned by
the Hq. & Hq. Sq. of the III
Fighter Command moving from
their old barracks to a new loca-
tion. Hq. Sq. is now "at home"
in the four barracks formerly oc-
cupied by the 10th Fighter Wing
in the block bounded by First
and Second Streets and B and C
avenues.
Moving on Sunday was "un-
official" and was done in vehicles
of all sorts that were available-
jeeps, trucks and cars belonging
to the men of the Squadron. The
early birds moved Sunday to
make sure of getting space ad-
jacent to the windows.
At -7 AM, Monday morning; the
remainder of the Squadron began
loving. By 8:30 everybody and
is belongings had been placed
in the properly designated bar-
racks. Then the Orderly Room
was moved. And smiling faces
were seen about everywhere (oh
yeah?)
Brigadier General A. H. Gilke-
son is Commanding General of
the. III Fighter Command. Major
John K. Coughlan is Command-
ing Officer of Hq. & Hq. Sq., III
Fighter Command.

to the personnel of the military
or naval forces by persons who
are not members of such forces,"
says the warning.

grade or rating, the designation
of the service to which he belongs
and the word "Free" niust be in
the handwriting of the sender.
Among: items acceptable free of
postage are:
Letters that are personal., to
relatives, friends, etc., including
V-mail; to associations, firms, or
corporations, including remit-
tances; special delivery, provided
the fee for such service is pre-
paid; mailed while the sender is
on rfurlouggh; from members .of
the armed forces who may -be
aslIgned to some active duty;
from nurses and chaplains who
are members of the armed forces.
Other miscellaneous items which
the free mail privilege applies to

when-accompanied by letters;
Souvenir and pictorial cards, un-
less bearing matter of a promo-
tional nature; greeting cards, such
as Mother's Day, birthday, sea-
sonable, etc.; inclosed in enve-

"In those days we didn't have.
a couple of barracks bags full of
clothing as the soldier does now.
We didn't have portable radios
and all the 'doodads that the sol-
dier thinks he must have today.
We had one uniform, we wore it
on our backs, an extra shirt, a
couple extra suits of underwear,
the long handled variety, and- a
tooth brush '
"Instead of the mobile kitchens
that move with the troops today,
we had the "goulash gun," a
mule-drawn chow wagon.- Be-
lieve you me, we saw to it that
the gun was right behind -us.
When the "gun"' mired down
there wasn't a man, regardless
of his rank, who refused to put
his shoulder to the wheel. It was
the only vehicle of any kind we
had and the roads were not
paved highways that we know
today. But, then, we didn't have
to worry about gas or rubber
tires, either.
"The going was hard in that
army. We were hard as men. At
night we rolled into blankets
underneath the chow wagon or
in hay stacks any place we
could find that offered shelter
and a bit of warmth when the
nights were cold. No one thought
of the lined sleeping bags or pup
tents in those days. We'd have
been considered "softies."
