Women Marines

Women Veterans Day actually acknowledges the history of our journey and the legislation that was passed. Providing history supports inclusion because it can show the entire story. “The first Women Veterans Day on June 12, 2018 marked the 70th anniversary of the groundbreaking legislation signed into law by President Harry S. Truman on June 12, 1948. The Women’s Armed Services Integration Act enabled women to serve as permanent, regular members of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and recently formed Air Force.” Linda Ellis Florence Novak Buckley Lohen
