America’s Military Women–Taking the Lead
Women’s Memorial Foundation Releases 2009 Women’s History Month Kit
The Women’s Memorial Foundation is honored to present its online Women’s History Month Kit in commemoration of this year’s celebration. Our newly-released poster, America’s Military Women––Taking the Lead, showcases military women as role models for today’s young men and women, serving in leadership roles and increasing levels of responsibility—as commanders, team leaders and decisonmakers—valuable members of America’s elite military team.
The kit also includes a Tribute to Our Fallen Sisters who died while serving their country in the Global War on Terror; a special online exhibit- The Baghdad Diaries, featuring the personal e-mail correspondence of a Marine Corps master gunnery sergeant; and a feature article about the Global War on Terror exhibit on display at the Women’s Memorial. As an added resource, we have included an article about the origin of Women’s History Month and an online resource guide, to help make this year’s journey through military women’s history even more meaningful.
