70 Pct. Of Iowa WACs From Fighting Families

A survey of approximately 70 per cent of the total Iowa WAC enlistment reveals its close integration with the war effort through service of members overseas and in this county, and through other members of their families.


The following Iowa WACs have an army postoffice address, indicating overseas service, but their exact station is not known:

Pvt. Betty J. Vosika, Carroll, is on foreign duty with a WAC communications company.

Secrecy covering overseas shipment makes it impossible to determine if additional Iowans have gone on foreign duty since early fall.
