They helped nurse the wounded, provide food and other supplies to the military, serve as telephone operators called the "Hello Girls", entertain troops, and work as journalists.

Many of these self-selected adventurous women found their own work, improvised their own tools, argued, persuaded, and scrounged for supplies.

They created new organizations where none had existed." Despite hardships, the women had fun and were glad they went to help.

Women sent out to canteen for the US Army - providing entertainment, sewing on buttons, handing out cigarettes and sweets - were virtuous women sent to "keep the boys straight."

Army efforts to keep women to the rear proved difficult. Women kept ignoring orders to leave the troops they were looking after, and bobbing up again after they had been sent to the rear.
