Film: The Shelter Island Library presents “The Hello Girls” at 1:30 p.m. During World War I, the U.S. Army Signal Corps desperately needed telephone operators who could connect calls and translate conversations between French and American troops. 223 women answered the call. They wore Army uniforms, swore an Army oath, held rank, and were subject to military justice. Though General John J. Pershing recognized them for their service, they were told by the U.S. Government upon their return that they were never soldiers. They fought for recognition for 60 years. “The Hello Girls” features rare footage of America’s first female soldiers and brings their forgotten history to life. This program is made possible by the Hamptons Doc Fest. For more information on the Hamptons Doc Fest, visit hamptonsdocfest.com.
