Beautiful young women put aside their attire to change into uniforms of the service,  work in factories, build war planes, etc. to assist in  WWII.

Women became recognized to serve in the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps for service, finally, with the assistance of Eleanor Roosevelt and Oveta Culp Hobby.  A law was passed during the mid forties, in allowing women to join the service. 

Nurses assisted during the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese.  Their efforts to save lives were invaluable.

Over 200 service women perished during WWII serving their country.

We should never forget these Veterans, who stood with their male counterparts as soldiers protecting our Country.

WOMEN  IN  WWII
Military nurses were very much involved in the turmoil at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, working under tremendous pressure during the aftermath of the morning's raids. The Japanese attack left 2,235 servicemen and 68 civilians dead. Eighty-two Army nurses were serving at three Army Medical Facilities in Hawaii that infamous December morning. Hundreds of casualties suffering from burns and shock were treated by Army and Navy nurses working side-by-side with civilian nurses and doctors. Nurses at Schofield Hospital and Hickam Field faced similar overwhelming numbers of wounded personnel. The Chief Nurse at Hickam Field, 1st Lt. Annie G. Fox, was the first of many Army nurses to receive a Purple Heart and the Bronze Star.
