Women's History Month

Generations of women--in the air and on sea and ground--served in the U.S. armed forces with honor and pride, paving the way for their successors. There are over 2 million U.S. women veterans from all eras of peace- and wartime-military service (World War II, Korean, Vietnam and Gulf Wars). In 2016, 100% of the military's combat and noncombat occupations opened to all service members. Of the total all-volunteer U.S. armed forces, 15% are women.
