WOMEN VETERANS IN THE MILITARY
Women veterans have served honorably in America’s wars and conflicts throughout our history. Although women were not formally under military command until the early 20th century, they have served in various capacities beginning with the Revolutionary War. Women veterans continue to break barriers today modeling national service for generations to follow. Did you know, The Women In Military Service For America Memorial is the only major national memorial honoring all women who served in our nation's defense? Their patriotism is recognized in the memorial through exhibits, film and the Memorial Register, which records each registered woman's individual story. Check it out https://womensmemorial.org.
