Preparation for and entry into World War II required significant changes in the United States, especially for the U.S. Army. Mobilization of manufacturing facilities created noteworthy opportunities for women to work in jobs traditionally considered the domain of men. Construction at camps and forts drove substantial improvement for local economics still suffering from the aftershocks of the great depression. And millions of men-and a large number of women-entered military service.
