Description: Three Women's Army Corps (WAC) clerks perform their flight operation duties at Ladd Field, Alaska, on 28 April 1945. Two are seated at desks, one of whom is using a typewriter. A third standing WAC is completing a form, perhaps for the serviceman at the Clearance service window. All women pictured are wearing WAC service dress. The lettering on the glass above the three service windows indicates the women work with the Airdrome Officer and Clearance. Pictured are: Pfc Betsy Ross, Pfc. Audrey Berard, and Private Marguerit Jacob.
