Women soldiers have served our country since the American Revolutionary War. Thirty-three thousand women served in World War I, and 500,000 participated in World War II. During the Korean War, 120,000 women were in uniform, and 7,000 females were deployed during the Vietnam conflict. In the Gulf War, 44,000 women served, amounting to seven percent of the total U.S. force.
 
Females have served with distinction as nurses, pilots, training specialists, clerks, and in many other capacities – sometimes even illegally, as combat soldiers. Yet, the efforts and sacrifices of America’s 1.8 million women veterans have seldom been recognized.
 
This stamp was issued in conjunction with the dedication of the Women in Military Service for America Memorial on September 18, 1997. Located on a four-acre site at the grand entrance to Arlington National Cemetery in Washington D.C., the memorial’s fundamental purpose is to document and preserve the individual and collective histories of women who have served in America’s defense.
 
At the center of the memorial is the Hall of Honor, which recognizes women killed in service, prisoners of war, those who took heroic measures, and other exceptional role models and female leaders.
