It’s National Vet Girls Rock Day.

There are nearly 2 million women who have served in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps.

During the Civil War, more than 400 women fought by disguising themselves as men.

Women were officially allowed to join the military during the last two years of WWI.

In 2016 the U.S. opened all military positions, including combat positions, to women.
