This is the story of America;s last all-female military band - the 14th Army Women;s Army Corp Band. The other military
branches fielded all-female bands, but the WAC Band survived longer than any. Through four decades, the WAC Band offered a
woman the rare chance to have a career as a professional musician.
The standards were very high for WAC Band members. They were not only elite musicians, they were representatives of the
United States Army. Their audiences were diverse - they marched out recruits for morning drills; they performed for enthusiastic
audiences in small town America; and they played for presidents.
The struggle for equal rights has been a familiar burden for women throughout history. But these women chose to follow
their own dreams. They marched down a road that would usher in a new era for women in America. They marched to the beat of
a different drummer.
