Last month, March, was women’s history month. To honor the contribution that women have made to America’s military, the Veterans Benefits Administration asked female veterans, their friends, and their families to submit photos showing our military women.
Here are some of those photos, men, we thank you for your service, and your acceptance of women in the ranks next to you. Women, we thank you for displaying the courage to join the men in the ranks, and serve alongside them.
Here are some of the photo collection that showcase the past half century of women in our military forces.
