So help me God.

Over hill, over dale,
As we hit the dusty trail
And those caissons go rolling along.
In and out, hear them shout,
“Counter march and right about”
And the caissons go rolling along.
                              
Then it’s Hi! Hi! Hee! In the Field Artillery
Shout out your numbers loud and strong,
Wher’er you go, you will always know,
That those caissons go rolling along,
 
 
From the East to the West we’re the bestest of the best
We’re the Women’s Army Corps
So it hail all hail
The women will not fail
To help make the foe turn tail
Join our song and with us march along
 In the Women’s Army Corps

Over sinks, over pails
With the Sergeant on our tails
All the K. P.’s are scrubbing away
Shining pots, shining pans,
Cleaning out the garbage cans
All the K. P.’s are scrubbing away

Oh it’s Hi! Hi! Hee! In the Kitchen scullerSixteen long hours of the day
And Wher’er we go,
By the smell you’ll always know,
That the K. P.’s are scrubbing away
(Keep em scrubbing)That the K. P.’s are scrubbing away

WAC BAND LYRE

The Honorable Edith Nourse Rogers, Congresswoman from Massachusetts, introduced the first bill to establish a women's auxiliary in May 1941. On 14 May 1942, Congress approved the creation of a Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC). Two days later, Mrs. Oveta Culp Hobby was appointed the first Director of the WAAC.
Five training centers were opened within a year. The first at Fort Des Moines, Iowa, the second at Daytona Beach, Florida, the third at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, the fourth at Fort Devens, Massachusetts, and the fifth at Camp Ruston, Louisiana. As an auxiliary of the Army, the WAAC had no military status, therefore Mrs. Rogers introduced another bill in 1943 to enlist and appoint women in the Army of the United States. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the bill on 1 July 1943 and 90 days later the WAAC was discontinued and in its place was the Women's Army Corps (WAC). Colonel Hobby continued as Director of the WAC.
