March – Women’s History Month

Let us not forget the many, many women of Chapel Hill Post No. 6 who served their country in uniform.  March is Women’s History Month!

Women have served in uniform since before the American Legion was formed.  They served as early as World War I!  And, during World War II, over 400,000 women served.

Today, women are serving everywhere and at all levels of command and operations.

Here is a story about our American Fighting Women from the Women in Military Service for America Memorial, narrated by Brigadier General Wilma L. Vaught, USAF (Retired).
