Margaret A. Smith, a former lieutenant in the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps during World War II, has completed her new book “My Life as a WAC”: a gripping and potent account of surpassing expectations and breaking new ground.

Published by Page Publishing, Margaret A. Smith’s inspiring tale follows the author as a young woman who enlists in the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC), later known just as the Women’s Army Corps (WAC). On May 14, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt approved the legislation that established the WAAC, paving the way for Margaret’s remarkable journey. This engrossing book tells the true story, in her own words, about Margaret, an inquisitive black woman, and her experiences in the Armed Services. As Margaret’s intimate story progresses, she has had to overcome potentially insurmountable obstacles, including facing the prejudice of being a woman, and a black woman at that, in the Armed Services.

As a young woman, Margaret is accepted into the WAAC, quickly advancing the ranks to achieve great success. Only three and a half weeks after joining, she was considered AWOL because she was unaware that she could not leave the city without reporting to the induction center. Her army lifestyle was a new experience that required a significant learning curve for Margaret, but through her basic training and powerful determination, she was able to advance the ranks and be accepted in administration and Office Candidate School, resulting in her becoming a first lieutenant.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “My Life as a WAC” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
