Lt. V. Rhodes of the WAAC at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia 1943

Fort Oglethorpe was a major training center for WAAC’s during WWII. It is no longer an active military post but the old fort grounds are still standing and house a US cavalry museum with displays of other branches and history of the fort. It, the fort, is located close to the Civil War battlefield of Chickamauga which is just south of the city of Chattanooga. The Chickamauga battlefield visitors center contains an extensive collection of arms and accouterments from the Civil War and some arms from other eras. It’s very interesting history on display.

Woman in a uniform have always an appeal. She is so amazingly beautiful. The uniforms were meant to be professional, feminine, attractive, and functional. Women were encouraged to be feminine (like wearing red lipstick) for morale.

  5. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  6. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  10. I wish to express my thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this particular dilemma.

Your own personal natural talent and kindness in maneuvering the whole thing was excellent. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come across such a thing like this. I can at this time look forward to my future. Thank you so much for the skilled and results-oriented help.
