Celebrate Women's History Month with Historian Mary Rasa
This program will discuss the first women to join the military during World War II, their civilian defense worker counterparts, as well as Women's Army Corps members from Fort Hancock and Monmouth. These women worked in motor pools, staffed offices, nursed the injured, lived in barracks, ate in mess halls, went to war zones, and died for their country.
