March is Women's History Month
Female members of the U.S. Military have not always received the recognition they've earned.
Yet, from sea, to ground, to sky, and beyond, women have worn the battle flag of the
United States of America and have bravely fought in her name. We honor them.
1782 - Deborah Sampson disguises herself as a man, to serve in the
Continental Army during the Revolutionary War.
1948 - Congress enacts the Woman's Armed Services Integration Act, allowing women to serve as permanent, regular members of the U.S. military, and not just in times of war.
A female soldier from Checotah who paid the ultimate price while serving her country, is being honored in Afghanistan.
Army Specialist Sarina Butcher was killed in November.
Now, a portion of a new USO Center at Bargram Airfield
has been named in her honor.
As you reflect on our nation's freedom, honor the courageous men and women dedicated to preserving it.
