A Cruiser’s Log From Midway to the Philippines

Cover: First WAC in Philippines

When Sgt, Madelyn Flynn of Mt. Kisco, N. Y., stepped off a transport onto a muddy strip in Leyte, she was the first Wac to set foot in the Philippines. Then with nine other Wacs and some colonels, also passengers on the plane, she dived for a slit trench in her first raid. She’s sweating one out here in front of a bomb shelter. / Photo by Sgt.
