WAC Medics

Sat Apr 09, 2016 06:44

Since we have female nurses being sent to the ETO, and there were some sent to the Pacific, especially the Philippines after the Invasion, does any know if enlisted WACS were trained as Medics and sent to the ETO to help the nurses in the hospitals, and the Surgical Hospitals?

Hello Cam,

No; the WAC was a completely separate organisation to the Army Nurse Corps. All female personnel found in semi-mobile Hospital units were drawn from either the Army Nurse Corps, Hospital Dietitian Corps, Physical Therapist Corps or as workers via the American Red Cross.

I hope that answers your question.

Kind regards,
