By Gail B. Beebe on August 12, 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This historical book will teach military enthusiasts about what it was like to be inducted into the WACs, trained and the experiences of one of the first young women to join the Woman's Army Corps for service in World War 2. Doris cancelled her teaching contract, got a signed permission slip from her father and enlisted into the service when she became 20 years old. She joined in Dec 1943 and was discharged in November of 1945. After her years of service she was always asked What was it like? This is her answer to that question. She wrote this book on such a personal and interesting level that it is a very readable book. Her service took her many places including to Brisbane, Australia and Manila, Philippines.
Doris Samford lived a couple of blocks from me and she was a Denver Public School teacher. I never had the honor to meet her.
