This is a fantastic "World War II / Korean War veteran" Women's Army Corps (WAC) Dress Blue Uniform out of my collection. The uniform consist of an officer's dress blue blouse. The blouse measurments are - Sleeves - shoulder seam to end of cuffs - 24 1/2 inches. Shoulder to shoulder - 15 inches. Length of the blouse - back of the collar to the bottom of the hem - 26 inches. Chest measures - 33 inches.

On each shoulder is the rank of Colonel Women's Army Corps shoulder straps, or also called passants in gold and silver bullion on moss green. The ribbons that are on the uniform that she earned are - Legion of Merit medal, Joint Service Commendation medal, Army Commendation Medal with one Oak Leaf Cluster, Women's Army Corps Service Medal, American Campaign Medal, Europe-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with one Bronze Service Star, World War II Victory Medal, Army of Occupation Medal with Gold Airplane, Medal For Humane Action, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal with one Bronze Service Star, Armed Forces Reserve Medal with one Bronze Hourglass "for service after 10 years of reserve service"., United Nations Service Medal. She has the Officer's US and the Women's Army Corps Pallas Athene (hallmarked by Vanguard) branch insignia on the blouse lapels. On the blouse cuffs is the gold and moss green WACS cuff bands.

The blouse was custom tailored by Miles of Petersberg, VA. The uniform comes with a pair of women's army dark blue slacks. During the late 1950's, when the Army introduced a dress blue uniform for officer's, warrant officer's and enlisted women; a matching skirt would have been worn with the blouse. She must have worn the slacks during the last period of her military service. I wish t was a name on the uniform; this would have helped with doing more research. On the blouse tag it states - 14 long and a number - 76818. No date or other information . The uniform has no tears or holes that I can find. It is in beautiful condition.
