Abstract:

This episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series goes to Fort McClellan, Alabama, for this first look at the new training center for Women's Army Corps officers and enlisted women. Since the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps was created in 1942, women training for service with the U.S. Army have had a number of temporary homes, ranging from Florida to Massachusetts, from Iowa to Virginia. The permanent WAC Center is a cluster of 22 cream-colored buildings in a natural setting at Alabama's Fort McClellan. This program from the National Archives and Records Administration looks at the increasingly important role women are playing in the nation's defense.
