"Hello Girls" Iosco County Historical Society Lecture

As part of our Our Heritage Monthly Lecture Series:  Join us for this months talk on August 15th, at 6:30pm at the Iosco County Historical Museum for "The Hello Girls".  This lecture will be given by storyteller Lois Sprengnether Keel.  Lois will tell the fascinating stories  about the U.S. Army telephone operators that helped win WWII.

 

During World War I, some 223 members of the U.S. Army Signal Corps performed a highly specialized service which demanded great skill, nerve and tenacity: Over the vast network of telephone lines that had been hastily constructed across France, these soldiers worked the complicated switchboards connecting the ever-shifting front lines with vital supply depots and military command. At the height of the fighting, they connected over 150,000 calls per day.
