Laghman Province, Afghanistan – Forty-three years ago, U.S. Congress designated August 26th as Women’s Equality Day to commemorate granting women the right to vote.

When put into historical military context, the roles women have filled in their service to their country have gone under measureable change in the 239 year history of the U.S. Army — when women would help nurse the wounded and sick during the Revolutionary War.

Now, women make up approximately 15 percent of the active-duty Army and represent 95 percent of its’ career fields.
