Women make their mark as service members and civilians
March 25, 2013
REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. - Oftentimes, after removing the uniform, veterans continue to serve the nation as federal civilians, and that is true for both men and women.
Veterans feature prominently in the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command workforce, accounting for about 45 percent of employees. Approximately 39 percent of the workforce are male veterans, while approximately 6 percent are female veterans.
In honor of Women's History Month, the 20 women in the photo above have a combined total of 276.5 years of service in the Army, Navy and Air Force.
A heart-felt "Thank You" to the many women and men who have served in the military, and to those who continue to serve as federal civilians after they take off their uniform.
