One June 12, 1948, President Truman signed into law the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act, which enabled women to serve as permanent, regular members of the military. Since its passing in 1948, women have made great progress in the U.S. military, proving that those who fought to have the act signed into law were right.While much progress has been made for women in the military, there is still staggering evidence that shows the care they receive after their service is not on par with their male counterparts.
