[ARCHIVED] Display Highlights Women Who Served


Whether behind the scenes or on the front lines, women have helped support American military operations for decades.

In honor of Veterans Day on November 11, Cranberry Township will host “American Women Serving Our Country During Wartime” display from November 9 through 19.

The display was created by Ed Catozella and Gail Mashuda after they researched female support and involvement in various American conflicts, including:

  • World War I: 35,000 Army, 11,000 Navy nurses
  • World War II: 60,000 Army nurses, 80,000 non-combatant specialists
  • Korean War: 12,000 nurses
  • Vietnam: 9,000 Army nurses and the first aviators
  • Desert Storm: 24,000 women deployed, including the first women in combat
  • War on Terror to Present: full combat roles, the first B-52 pilot, Army Rangers, and Navy combat ship commanders
  • American Red Cross: always there, stateside and in combat zones

The display can be found in front of the Customer Service Department at the Municipal Center, 2525 Rochester Road.
