When my husband and I first moved to this town, one of the first American Legion members we met was a WWII female Marine. She proudly states that she was in the only female Marine Corps band during WWII and played the euphonium. This birthday, I got her a T-shirt and 2 coins.

Thank you! I'll take a better picture today, since she's always been a part of our ceremonies. I tried to convince her to ride in the parade, but she wants to sell poppies instead.

If you are ever in the DC area j would encourage everyone to visit the Women in Military Service Memorial. It's a great place to get a lot of history as discussed here and see true stories of women who served. Their exhibit on Nurses in Vietnsm I thought was amazing

LTC Richard Wasserman. I have come such a very long way from living outside the wire of Soviet Uranium Mines in Czechslovakia . . . through so many conflicts and disasters . . . to finally consider coming to rest on Ventura Beach between Malibu and Santa Barbara. But, I worry about the many good people still in harm's way . . . it is very hard to even consider settling down to a much more peaceful, secure, and quieter life. Warmest Regards, Sandy

We should all be thankful to be so blessed we can make a difference in the lives of many others.

SSG Maurice P. Excuse me??? My Mom was a WW II Navy nurse & I served during the Vietnam/ Cold War era, also as a Navy nurse! There were a lot of us. In fact women began serving quite early in the LAST century. Just a month ago the Navy Nurse Corps celebrated its113th anniversary, & the Army Nurse Corps is a couple or so yrs older. My Aunt was a woman Marine during WW II also. We galshave been serving far longer than you seem to think...

Lt Col (Join to see), I don't personally know this woman, but I wish I did! U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (representing Hawai'i's second U.S. Congressional District) will be sworn in to her second term when Congress reconvenes on January 6, 2015. She is also a captain in the Hawai'i Army National Guard and should be celebrated.
We went to the same OCS, just 34 years apart!

FYI, SSG Gerhard S. Col Rebecca Lorraine

actually Tulsi Gabbard was a Major in the National Guard. Prior to becoming an Officer She also had held all the enlisted rank from E1 up to SP4. She recently has changed from the Hawaii Guard to Army Reserve as a Major. She has served two tours also in the Mid East with the Army. She had already held a number of elected offices within the State of Hawaii before being elected to the US Congress. She is very Patriotic and I feel someone that may well have a great Political future in store for Her. She does think for Herself and if something is wrong has no hesitation exposing it and that included some major problems in the Democratic party of which She is a member. I do have a very positive impression of Her including something rarely found in politics, honesty !
