March is Women's History Month
Women Marines

Just over a year after the United States entered World War II, the United States Marine Corps authorized a Women's Reserve, becoming the last of the services to open its ranks to both genders.

When publicly announced in February 1943, the Corps had a goal of recruiting 1,000 female officers and 18,000 enlisted volunteers. By the end of the war, in 1945, there were 820 officers and 17,640 enlisted female Marines. These women served in non-combat roles, predominantly in clerical positions, although some were parachute riggers, mechanics, radio operators, welders and more, and none served farther west than Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
