  1. This was a wonderful time in my life! Thanks for posting for all of us.

  2. ugh uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh uuUUUUUGh i really don't like the gender conditioning but this is the 1940s but stilllllllllllllllll

  3. was this truly how it was in 1953 for the women? no bus load of recruits, drove themselves in? personal clothing&toys kept?measuring clothing and shoes slowly and calmly while others wait? time to bathe every day? "freshen up"with lipstick throughout the day? CURLERS??really??. if so how long did this strange fantasy last?? just long enough for the film?

  4. Thank you for uploading this video.  I was born in 1974.  I wish I grew up in the 40's and 50's.  Everyone was well-dressed and well-groomed.  Hygiene and personal appearance was very important back in the old days.

  5. I was drafted in 1964. I had dated Alberta to that time. she joined the wacs and served until 1973 at the rank of captain. Both us grew up and not seeing each other till 1975. The military experience was good for both of us. Sweet Alberta died in 2010 from copd. I carry her picture in uniform, she was so beautiful.

  6. Nowhere near as good as the one for WWII, as it was a bit more….personal. Actually, I think a lot of women would do well to watch it, for all mens sake.

  7. The posture part really shows how conservative this era was. Butt in and stomach flat? It's been proven now that that posture is nearly as bad as slouching.

  8. In the Air Force formal and semi-formal dining, junior enlisted are served first, followed by NCO, Senior NCO, Company grade commisioned, Field grade, General officer. In the cafeteria dining hall, it's first come, first serve unless the senior member requests a faster meal due to duty requirements. When I was in the USAF ('73-'79), we used to get a chuckle out of other services staring at our E-3, -4 and -5 flightline troops sharing tables with their officer pilots…LOL!

  9. Our Army marching song in 1973: "They say that in the Army, the Wacs are might fine. They look like Phyllis Diller and walk like Frankenstein!  Sound off One two, sound off three four…etc.

  10. A fine film, still relevant today. We don't want manly looking women with chipped nails in our armed forces. Ironing boards in tip top condition have saved many a sticky situation. I'm joking. Delightful music and archive. The inclusion of black women is particularly interesting, the wider historical context, the film-makers getting them to show 'the wrong walk'. I presume the main characters were actors. A remarkable film on many accounts. A shame the sound cuts out just when it was getting exciting..

  11. Wow, they had a seamstress fitting their uniform and fitting their shoes. I wonder what would have happened if they told us guys to shave our legs and under our arms to stop body odor.that's pretty decent. I imagine it really must have been a little scary for these woman, When I came back from Germany and mustering out in Ft Sheridan. me and some of our group went to the EM club. I saw the prettiest WAC. She was down right beautiful and I was broke, none of us had any money, because we were not paid yet. anyway, I give these Girls a lot of credit for going in. when they did not have to.

  12. Dang, I'm jealous. When I went through basic training; we didn't get nearly as much personal hygiene time. The thought of makeup or hair styling; except to keep it out of the way; was unheard of. lol.

  13. Early Hollywood equivalent of porn back in the day lol…..I bet guys watched this and were yankin like nyc

  14. Boy, would it be nice to have an all-gender auxiliary corps. There are paper-pusher positions easily filled by people who can't pass Basic for whatever reason (disability, for example) and we want to serve, too!

  15. I wish somebody would have warned me: do not stuff empty magazines down shirt and expect bra to get off scot free.
    I would like to join the army where cake is a daily necessity.

  16. NO MUSLIM HEADSCARVES HERE…OBAMA MADE THAT A LAW IN OUR MILITARY NOW TO ACCOMMODATE WOMEN MUSLIMS AND TURBANS FOR MUSLEM MEN.

  17. My late mother always seemed to walk with a combination of the army walk and the masculine walk. Also notice how a lot of the woman have their feet pointing out ward or side ways. My mom used to scold me to put my feet forward. She told me that if I hadn't fixed my way of walking I might have needed leg braces. Now I walk similar to how she did. Mind you my mom was born in 1953 and had me in 1987, so I have a feeling she got the walk from her first husband who was an Army Man. He supposedly cheated on my mom and after the divorce he went back to stay in Korea. What a jerk, thank go he wasn't my Father. Though my own was't a piece of cake either.

  18. Also, words on screen do not match what is being said! Don't know who did this but it is not necessary and not what is said.

  19. This is a very good video. I think the title needs to be changed because this is not from the 60's, as it is instructions for WAAC and is in black and white.

  20. interesting that the sound cuts out for the army medical information, and a small bit of other information.. just to make it look less obvious.

  21. I don't understand why they didn't draft women in the military back than to the medical jobs…if we had more nurses and medical personnel we save more lives

  22. The first paragraph at the top of the page addresses Women's Army Corps (which no longer exists – all are Soldiers in the US Army, even though BMT is still segregated by gender) Basic Training, but then all information following the first paragraph is all about Air Force Basic Training, not Army.
    They are not the same services, or have the same requirements and standards. The Army Air Corps was made the U.S. Air Force, the newest service in the U.S. military in 1948.

  23. Do you see the difference from today? First, they were treated in a casual manner as everyone knew they weren't really soldiers, not really. Second, being women, it was still part of the culture to treat women with courtesy and dignity, unlike today. Now, in Army and Marine boot camp, they scream at those young women like they're…men.

  24. I kept waiting for the part where they stripped down to bras and panties for the barracks tickle fights in the evenings

  25. In found memory of AIT at Fort Sam Huston. I just have to share this Christmas song we made up to the 12 Day's of Christmas " On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a Tracheotomy ? On the second Day of Christmas my true love gave to me two bed pan's klanging and a tracheotomy? On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me three enema flushes? Two bed pans Klanging and a tracheotomy? On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me four nurse's laughing? Three enema flushes? Two bed pans klanging and a tracheotomy? On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me five CPR compressions? Four nurse's laughing? Three enema flushes? Two bed pans klanging and a tracheotomy? I have to stand on the fifth because it might incriminate me and other's for drinking beer at the NCO, Enlisted Mens, and Officers backstage canteen door with the Andrews Sister's, but what can I say in found memory of Fort Sam at Christmas dedicated to Cindy Robert's of Georgia and all those other nurse's and medical trainees and staff? Thinking of the movie " Captain Newman M. D. ?"

  26. Sadly this may be needed to get the last two and present generation back into appropriate standards self care ⁉️ lol

  27. Great film, brought back memories of entering the WAC at Ft. McClellan in 1967. Turned a flighty wet-behind-the-ears 22 year old into a responsible adult. No regrets at all. The marching was so much fun.

  28. The parade field at the end of this film are still used by the US Army. I drive past it almost everyday going to the base gym.

  29. We seemed to have lost sound when it got overly 'Strictly Personal". Didn't really want to know what the doctor was all about…
