Today we recognize the resilience and grit of women that served our country. From nurses going to the battleground to aid in the well-being of our soldiers to women enlisting in active military duty, we have come along way.
Today we remember Deborah Sampson and Cathay Williams, who disguised themselves as men to be able to fight in battle. We recognize the strength and bravery that Major General Marcelite J. Harris for being the first woman of color to be an Air Force General. We celebrate the women that broke through the glass ceiling and that paved the way fearlessly and fiercely for women that were openly able to enlist in the military during WWI, WWII and today.
