AskPatty Remembers Our Women in the Military

Thinkstock-woman-military-memorial-day-174255751Today at AskPatty, we remember the women service members who have taken on a variety of roles and have risen through the ranks in our nation’s military. Wives, mothers, sisters, daughters: At the foundation of our nation’s history with the American Revolution and continuing to the present, women have always volunteered in defense of our nation.

According to the National Women’s History Project, more than 24,000 women served in World War I -- half of whom were nurses in the Navy, Army, and Red Cross. 

From 1942-1945, while men fought in the battlefront of World War II, more 18 million women filled the civilian and defense positions created is the country's shift to wartime productions.

Scores of women have served honorably in a variety of occupations, but most importantly, we made history when The Pentagon lifted its ban on women in front-line combat roles. In January, 2013, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, signed an order at a Pentagon news conference rescinding the rule that prevented women from serving in direct combat jobs.

“In 2025, 8 billion people will live on the planet; 4.5 billion will live in cities. There will be 1.8 billion cars on the roads.  In order to address the personal mobility needs of people living within the world’s most densely populated urban city centers, BMW created BMW i – the sustainable new sub-brand whose mission is to develop visionary vehicles and mobility services.”
