Women in the Armed Forces: A Century of Service captures the history of 100 years of women in the military, both formally and informally, dating back to the American Revolution.
In its recounting of people and events, Women in the Armed Forces describes how women sought to serve from the earliest days of the republic, and celebrates their service, sacrifices and accomplishments in breaking barriers and proving their worthiness on the front lines and in command. From their days of primarily working in administrative support and nursing duties, women have expanded their roles to commanding troops on the ground, in the air, and on the seas and from the highest offices to serving in military service occupations that were once off limits to females.
For 100 years, women have met the call of duty and exceeded expectations, and will continue to do so for the next hundred years.
