Since before the Civil War, women have found a variety of ways to serve their country. From their early days as cooks and nurses, to the combat positions they fulfill today, the roles of women have evolved within the military. This program will examine artifacts and stories from our collection highlighting the significant contributions of women in the military through the years. Join Collections Manager Lisa Terrano and Curator Michael Kraus as we salute women in the military.
