Msgt. Frieda M. Lambrecht was a Veteran of both World War II and Korean War. She served during an era when opportunities for women in the military were expanding. As a soldier in the Army Medical Department, she affected the lives of many wounded soldiers during both wars.

During World War II, Lambrecht decided to use her medical experience in the military. In February 1945, she enlisted in the Women’s Army Corps as a surgical assistant. Established in 1942, the Women’s Army Corps created hundreds of non-combat positions for women, giving them the first opportunities to serve in the Army in occupations other than a nurse. It allowed women to expand into the fields of driving, cooking, medical, and clerical work.
Lambrecht continued to serve in the Women’s Army Corps after World War II ended. She worked in a number of different Army hospitals around the country. While serving in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, she met Conrad J. Lambrecht, an Army warrant officer and bandleader. They married in July 1951...
