Women of War

August 3, 2009


As many people know, I have a soft spot for generations past, and images capturing the times and lives of those encompassing said generations.  Often, I post a large amount of WWII era images, influences, personalities, and all other things captured during these times,  obsessing over every aspect.

In my coverage, I’ve really only written about the men involved, and failed to include the priceless sacrifices countless women made during these founding moments in history, and for this magnificent country of ours.  With a family full of veterans, one of which is an Aunt who recently spent over a year aboard the U.S.S. John C. Stennis, an aircraft carrier taking her on a complete tour of the globe, I’ve decided to represent some of her past female comrades.

Aside from all personal attachments, the women representing our country during these challenging times, were in fact the back bone of American might, and in many ways kept America afloat.  I’m not talking about sewing buttons and typing letters, but producing ammunitions, tanks, tomcats, or taking up arms and representing America themselves.   Saying we wouldn’t be here without these women and their male counterparts is an understatement.    Check out some more photos after the jump.
