Veterans Day

11 Nov

The Arizona Historical Society is closed today Monday, November 11, 2013, for Veterans Day. Stay tuned later this week for a special post detailing our future closures for the rest of 2013. The photo you see below is from a photo file on the Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps which was formed as a branch of the U.S. Army in May 1942. Women have not always held prominent positions in the military and increasing rights for women who want to join the armed forces is an interesting part of American history. Take some time with your daughters AND sons this Veterans Day to talk about the evolving role of women in America’s military.
