U.S. #1013 was issued to honor the role of women in the armed services. Shown are women in uniform from the Marines, Army, Navy, and Air Corps. In the background is the U.S. capitol. The image of the women was taken from a photograph in a recruiting folder from the Department of Defense.
 
Women Enter the Military
Women have been involved in nearly all U.S. military conflicts since the American Revolution. It wasn’t until World War II, however, that they were officially allowed to serve in the military. 
 
During World War II, more than 40,000 women served in the armed forces, contributing the Allied victory. About 75% of those women held traditional “female” jobs, as typists, clerks, and mail sorters. Although they were not allowed to participate in the conflicts, their contributions on the home front allowed for more men to be sent to the front lines.
