Well, Women’s History is over but it has been a great time for Cyndee and “Mollie’s War” as Cyndee and Doug have crisscrossed the state telling Mollie’s story of her service in the WACs during WWII—and how Mollie’s generation laid the groundwork for future generations of women in the military.  We traveled from Chillicothe near Peoria to Great Lakes in North Chicago and even to the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Milwaukee–and all points in between.    We met other women who served as WACs at the same time as Mollie.   One woman served in Europe and said that it brought memories.  Another woman talked about serving in the US during WWII.  One gentleman brought the “New York Port of Embarkation” card showing that his aunt arrived in New York just one month before my mother returned from Europe.  She also returned on the Queen Mary.   We even met a woman who served bagels on Michigan Avenue during WWII!  Several younger women, one Marine and one Sailor thanked my mother for what her generation did for them—they could be “all they can be.”
