Women’s History Month
Every year on March 8th, we celebrate women and their accomplishments around the world. Every day, we are in awe of all those who sacrifice so much for our nation, but we especially recognize the sacrifices, battles, and accomplishments women in the armed forces uniquely face. While women have been making important contributions to war efforts for centuries, it was less than 100 years ago that they were formally, and legally allowed to join the ranks of the United States Military. Since the passing of legislation in 1948, notably after both world wars, women in the military have continued to prove their invaluable contributions.
On International Women’s’ Day, we celebrate the women of history that have paved the way for women to be equal members of the military. This month, we will celebrate on our Military No Stress PCS social media platforms and share the stories of 4 history-making women in the military. The accomplishments these women have achieved include but are not limited to the first female four-star admiral of the United States Navy, the first female Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force, the first-ever female Inspector General of the United States Marine Corps, and the first female deputy commanding general of the U.S. Army Forces Command.
We also celebrate the women of today who continue to break barriers. In 1973, the first eight female students enrolled in Navy pilot school, and fifty years later, in 2023, four female Navy pilots conducted the first ever all-women U.S. Navy Superbowl flyover. Women continue to benefit and grow the United States Military and in 2021, over 17% of our active-duty forces positions were held by women of all races and cultural backgrounds from across the country.
Military No Stress PCS thanks all the women that have made unimaginable sacrifices on behalf of the United States Military. As a non-profit dedicated to serving those who serve our country, we see the contributions women make to all branches of the military day in and day out. We are forever thankful and in awe of all those who have stepped up in the name of our country. Join us today on International Women’s’ Day as we celebrate the United States servicewomen of the past, present, and future.
