Women in the Armed Forces During WWII
Presentation by John Cilio

John Cilio returns with a relevant and engrossing multi-media presentation about how the bold women that blazed the trail for presence in the American military changed the way the country’s military operates today. At the urging of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, the idea of women in the U.S. Military took shape in the early 1940s. In addition to factory work and other home front jobs, nearly 400,000 women joined the Armed Services, serving at home and abroad.
