An admiral would serve in the Navy or Coast Guard. Senior officers in the Army are generals. The answer is no admiral was involved in organizing or commanding the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) (note the correct word order). The WAAC was organized at the behest of Army chief of staff, General George C. Marshall to meet anticipated manpower shortages cause by total mobilization in World War II. Laws of the United States pertaining to military service were interpreted as applying to men only with the exception of the Army and Navy nurse corps. As a result special laws were required before women could be enlisted or commissioned in the Army or Navy. The bill to establish a women's corps in the Army was introduced by Congresswoman Edith Norse Rodgers. It caused intense debate in the Congress. Congressmen worried, for example, about who would take care of the "homey" chores -- caring for children, doing the cooking and laundry. It was only the strong support from the Secretary of War and Gen. Marshall, driven by wartime necessity, that swayed a reluctant Congress. The WAAC was authorized by Congress with the passage of Public Law 77-554 on May 14, 1942. The law was signed by President Franklin Roosevelt on May 15th. The first women began training at Fort Des Moines, IA on July 20, 1942. The WAAC was organized under the leadership of Colonel Oveta Culp Hobby. She was not a "commander," a military term that has legal and operational meaning. She was a staff officer in the War Department headquarters. Staff officers are not "commanders." The WAAC status as an auxiliary was changed with the signing of Public Law 78-110 on July 1, 1943. The Women's Army Auxiliary Corps became the Women's Army Corps. Dropping auxiliary status, women in the WAC were now officially and legally "in" the Army.
