Description:

Photograph of three women close together disembarking from a C-54 Douglass Skymaster.

Pictured with her arm extended and with boots on the ground is Major Frances S. Comick. Comick was a WAC deputy Staff director during the war. Comick wears the M-1943 standard issue field jacket, and given the positioning of the trousers it is probable that she has on the the pre-1944 pattern. She also wears the standard M-1 steel helmet, and standard combat boots with M-1938 leggings.

As indicated by her rank insignia, the woman standing on the plane platform is Lieutenant Colonel Anna M. Wilson. She is attired in an ETO WAC jacket , pre-1944 standard trousers, garrison cap, and standard army shoe with attached leggings.

Located inside of the plane leaning outward is Major Mary A. Hallaren, who is attired similarly to Colonel Wilson.
