One of only 150 Signal Corps women assigned to the Southwest Pacific area in the World War II, Selena Weise offers a unique perspective to the role of Signal Corps. In October 1941, Ms. Weise started a career as a clerk-typist at Camp Wallace, Texas. Joining the Women's Army Corps in 1944, she was trained by the Army Signal Corps to be a cryptographer before being shipped overseas in October of that year.
The Good Soldier is the record of 22 months of service in the Army, 14 of which were spent in the Southwest Pacific area as a Signal Corps WAC. The WACs knew the importance of their work and kept their morale high.
Unexpectedly, after V-J Day, discipline and moral collapsed partly due to the fact no plans for the disposition of the Women's Army Corps after the war had been made. A woman veteran returning to San Francisco after the war received a hero's welcome, but then bad to deal with the difficulties of being a returning woman veteran.
