Description:

Photograph of four service members surrounding a radio. The woman on the left wears what appears to be a combination of various Women's Army Corps [WAC] approved uniform types. She has on a summer dress uniform jacket, and a WAC officers winter dress. The two stripes on the upper arm of her shoulder indicate that she is a corporal. Like the men, she has on no service insignia on her collar, which indicates that this photo was likely taken during off duty hours.

Text on back of photograph reads: "In the War Room, getting latest news. Ft. Myers, Florida. Credit-U.S. Army Air Forces Flight Training Command".
