Join us in person on March 14, 2022 at 7:00 PM for our first meeting of the year!
Monmouth University Specialist Professor of Public History and former US Army Fort Monmouth Command Historian Melissa Ziobro will talk on how the US Army Signal Corps employed women as telephone switchboard operators during WWI. The “Hello Girls” worked long hours to ensure battlefield communications. Their Chief Operator, Grace Banker, hailed from new Jersey. After the war, the women fought for veteran status, and they are being considered for a Congressional Gold Medal today.
Meeting location: Woman’s Club of Point Pleasant Building, 513 St. Louis Avenue, Point Pleasant Beach. Face coverings are optional, and your decision to mask or not mask will be respected by all.
