Women Veterans

Native Women Veterans of our military.

Recognition for Native American Women who served in the military.

Did you know that there are almost two million women veterans? From the American Revolution to Panama, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq , women have served in some way in every conflict. Not that they were legal in the early days. History tells us that thirty three thousand women served in World War One and almost 500,000 took part in World War Two. During the Korean era 120,000 women were in uniform and seven thousand were deployed in theater during Viet Nam. During Desert Storm seven per cent of the total U.S. forces deployed were women – over forty thousand of them. On these pages you will find the history and accomplishments of those women who have served this country – voluntarily – since it’s beginning.”
