In 1918, the U.S. Army Signal Corps sent 223 women to France as telephone operators to help win the Great War. They wore Army uniforms and swore Army oaths. They were intrepid, united in a common cause. Like Joan of Arc before them, they wanted to save France. By war’s end, these women, known affectionately as the Hello Girls, had connected over 26 million calls.
