In honor of Women’s History Month, VA is celebrating the accomplishments female service members have made while serving our country. In doing so, we reached out to women Veterans and their family members to supply photographs for a montage. The response was amazing—in less than a week, we’ve received 170 photographs of women in uniform that stretch beyond the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan back to World War II. The photos reflect a diverse group of women who are timelessly united by their willingness to serve.
