"Since America's founding, women have been driven by patriotic zeal to serve their country, while concurrently pursuing greater economic and social opportunity. From uncommon soldiers who disguised themselves to fight and nurses that faced horrific wounds to those who proudly wear the uniform in battle zones today, women have contributed to our military might in ways unknown to most Americans. This is their story. It is a tale of pride and love of country; a quest for status and recognition; a journey of dedication to the freedoms we all relish."
