The Very Few, The Proud: Women in the Marine Corps 1977-2001 (Free PDF Book)
Nonfiction | War/Military | Marine Corps
From the Introduction: American military women have always been a volunteer force. From Private Opha May Johnson - who enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1918 with more than 300 other women to serve during World War I - to the more than 20,000 women who served as Marines during World War II, to the newest privates and second lieutenants, many women seek the special challenge offered by the Marine Corps. Like all worthwhile achievements, the acceptance of women into the Corps was hard-won and in some ways remains an ongoing fight.
