Women in the US, "Volunteered" for the US Military and often volunteered for duty in Vietnam. US women in the US Army served in the Women's Army Corps (WAC's) during WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The WAC's were disbanded in 1975, when the new all volunteer army and equal opportunity policies took effect. US Army WAC's performed support functions (medical, administrative, etc.) during WWII, Korea, and the Vietnam War.
