Celebrating Women's History Month

Highlighting Women Who Supported the Fight

As the Navy celebrates Women's History Month this March, we take a look at women who have served and the contributions they have made over the years.


During WWII, women on the home front answered the call to support the war effort while the men were called off overseas. 92-year-old Mrs. Betty Reid Soskin gives us a first-hand account of how women's support of the war effort affected cultures, communities, and change.
