Hey all!

I wanted to become a US female medic, but not sure whether I gotta go for the WAC or Nurses Corps? And uniform help would be awesome!

Thank you
Sammie

Nurse.
AFAIK, Medics served right on the front line, attached to combat units, so would all have been male.

I agree with Ttaskmaster. There were no female medics except in Russia. You will need to look at nursing.
