The Good Soldier: The Story of a Southwest Pacific Signal Corps
by Selene H.C. Weise
One of only 150 Signal Corps women assigned to the Southwest
Pacific area in World War II, Selene Weise offers a unique perspective to the role of the
Signal Corps. The Good Soldier is the record of 22 months of service in the Army,
14 of which were spent in the Southwest Pacific area as a Signal Corps WAC. Selene Weise's
observations and experiences offer a woman's view of the war. Surviving twenty-two months
and acquiring three battle stars, Ms. Weise finally returned home only to find continued
prejudice against a woman in uniform who had served her country overseas in battle zones.
