Carol M. Case Goddard served in the WAC from 1944-1945.
Carol Goddard, a civilian military recruiter from Hot Springs, South Dakota, joined the Women's Army Corps (WAC) in late October 1944. Private Goddard’s situation was a little unusual for a member of the WAC. Not only was she 41 years old when she enlisted, but she also left an attorney husband at home in Hot Springs. The letters from Carol are written from three different locations: basic training at Ft. Des Moines, Iowa; Rapid City Army Air Force Base in South Dakota; and Ft. Sheridan, Illinois
