Description

What do you know about the U.S. Navy’s Patriotic Pioneers?

In this historical text, you will learn about women from very diverse backgrounds that have been serving their nation since the American Revolution.  The yeomen females are continuing to maintain their status despite all the backlash they receive. The navy has changed significantly since these women have joined and their fight for equality.  The epilogue summarizes the major changes in the status of Navy women since World War 1.

You will learn about Loretta Perfectus Walsh, the first woman to enlist in the US Navy and volunteered to continue her family’s legacy of military service.

Included in this book are public domain and primary source references, such as:

  • Historical photographs of the U.S. Naval Enrollment Office as it appeared in 1880
  • U.S. Naval Reserve Force enlistees in year 1917
  • Enlisted Women’s Uniforms
  • Ciitations throughout the book
  • And more

 

This text is important to buy because it lets you the reader know how much women have impacted the dynamics in America’s Navy and today women are continuing their legacy with 17 percent of the total naval force, and of that group, 19% are officers and 20% are enlisted personnel.
