This is a necklace of twenty-eight (28) foreign coins joined together with wire through holes drilled in the coins. The donor, Technician Fourth Grade (T/4) Ruth Tenzer (bassoonist) was a member of the 401st Women’s Army Corp (WAC) Band stationed at USAG Fort Hamilton. @TRADOC Image
During WWII each branch of the military had all-female bands, performing with morale boosting music. The U.S. Army fielded five such bands: the 400th, 401st, 402nd, 403rd, and the 404th WAC Bands. The 404th being the only all-female, African American band in military history. Image

"Women who stepped up were measured as citizens of the nation, not as women. This was a people's war, and everyone was in it."
– COL Oveta Culp Hobby, first director of the Women’s Army Corps (WAC)
A dedicated civil servant and lifelong advocate for women in American public life, COL Oveta Culp Hobby helped open the door to women serving in uniform in the active components of the U.S. Army.

Culp Hobby’s service to the nation began in 1941, when she became the leader of the War Dept. Women’s Interest Section. She held this role until 1942, when she was appointed to lead the new Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC), an Army auxiliary meant to fill manpower gaps.

The main problem of Switzerland: besides YB and Basel, no team could gather enough coefficient points to be seeded in the most crucial qualifying rounds.

Who can be the 3rd power in Swiss Football?

#rotblaulive #BSCYB #fczuerich #fcluzern #fclugano #ServetteFC #FCSG #FCThun
Just compare this to Austria. They have currently 5 teams with a coefficient over 10.

This makes it so much easier to have a shot in the qualifying stages. Except when you meet Vaduz, of course 😉

Still, things do not look so bad for next season. Basel qualifying will be crucial once again. Current prediction:

YB: UCL Group Stage (Pot 4)
FCSG: EL Group Stage (Pot 4)
Servette: UECL Group Stage (Pot 4)
Basel: UECL Group Stage (Pot 1)
Lugano: Out in QF

This would be epic!
