WIMSA celebrates
Women’s History Month

A series of free events are scheduled at the Women’s Memorial. Some you may still be able to attend if you are in the area are: March 12– Retired Army LtGen Claudia Kennedy talks about her new book, a memoir of the first woman promoted to 3-star general in the army. March 14—Susan Livingstone, Under Secretary of the Navy, and Memorial Foundation President, Gen. Wilma L. Vaught, will speak, with a reception to follow. March 19—Retired Army Brigadier General Clara Adams Ender talks about her book “My Rise to the Stars, How a Sharecropper’s Daughter became an Army General.” March 27—Opening of “Clandestine Women: The Untold Stories of Women in Espionage.”

Army recruits first woman chaplain

The Rev. Juliette Huime, 44, is the Army’s first female chaplain. A former vicar in the Church of England, she took a career break to help crew a tall ship across the Pacific and decided to join the Army on her return. After rigorous tests designed to challenge her physically and mentally rather than spiritually, she expects to be posted to Germany to join the 7th Signal Regiment with the rank of captain. The Navy has had women chaplains for several years.

Books to enjoy

WIMSA has published a book with photographs by Lorraine Dieterle, a member of SemWaves Unit 101. “Arlington National Cemetery, A Nation’s Story Carved in Stone,” is available for $18.75 from WIMSA, PO Box 96745, Washington D.C. 20090-6745, or call 1-800-222-2294, to order. “Women at Risk: We Also Served” is about women who served our country since before WWII to the present day. More than sixty women from all branches of the service are profiled. The book by Noonie Fortin will be available at Barnes & Noble for $25.95, with a May publication date.
