This is neat: a local paper in Michigan posted an oral history interview (transcript and audio) with Imojean Ketter who served overseas during WWII as an Army Nurse. What a great project for local papers.
I do know that the role of the woman has changed over the years. We are recognized as someone that can contribute. I think that now that we see a woman running for president and vice-president, not long ago that wouldn’t have happened so I’m sure that women in the military now have not only changed the military but have changed people’s ideas of what women can do.
