USAHEC to Present Women's History Month Lecture

The U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) and the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) are proud to present a commemoration of Women’s History Month during the month of March.

The U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) and the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) are proud to present a commemoration of Women’s History Month during the month of March. As part of the National observance, the U.S. Army looks to recognize the outstanding contributions women have made to the Army, through their service from the Revolutionary War to today.  The USAHEC and USAWC team will host a presentation by MG (Ret) Dee Ann McWilliams, while also implementing a virtual delivery system to distribute information about women’s service in the U.S. Army throughout the month.

 

The month’s featured event is a lecture offered in the Visitor and Education Center by MG (Ret) Dee Ann McWilliams on Thursday, March 21, 2013 at Noon.  Giving a presentation entitled, “You’ve Come a Long Way Soldier!,” General McWilliams will provide a broad overview of the progress of women’s service in the Army.  Currently the President of the Army Women’s Foundation, General McWilliams’ Army career included a variety of personnel management-related assignments, including Director of Military Personnel Management, Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel at HQDA, and Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel and Installation Management, U.S. Army Europe and Seventh Army in Germany. She retired in March 2003.

 

In addition to the lecture, throughout the month USAHEC will add “Did You Know?” videos to the new Women’s History Month page on the commemoration page of USAHEC’s website (http://www.carlisle.army.mil/AHEC/awards/womenshistorymonth.cfm).  Pursuing a virtual route to help bring the USAWC Women’s History Month Commemoration to a larger audience, these 60-90 second video factoids about women’s history are presented by the U.S. Army War College Command Group.  Each video clip highlights various aspects of women’s history, including women connected to Carlisle, military women, and military spouses.  The website will be updated twice a week with new videos, so be sure to check back often to see the latest additions.

 

The USAHEC’s Women’s History Month lecture is free to attend.  Parking is also free at USAHEC. For more information, or to access the “Did You Know?” videos, please visit www.usahec.org or for questions, call 717-245-3972.
