World Premiere

“Duty” Women’s Army Corps Song / arr. MAJ Dorothy E. Nielsen (USAR, ret.)
Tune: Col. Bogey March

Duty is calling you and me,
We have a date with destiny,
Ready, the WACs are ready,
Their pulse is steady,
A world to set free,
Da de da da da da,

Service, we're in heart and soul,
Victory is our only goal.
We love our Country's honor,
And we'll defend it against any foe.
