There were 6.5 million women working in defense plants, shipyards and aircraft assembly plants in the US. Hispanic-Americans had between 250,00 and 500,000 uniformed servicepersons. Women in Uniform totaled 350,000 including 4,000 blacks. Japanese Americans had 33,000 join the military and 1.2 million black men answered the call to arms. Other nations like the USSR had women combat pilots, assault troops and snipers.
