Like us, many businesses and government agencies are celebrating Women’s History Month this March. More specifically, we are noting the contributions that women have made in the military throughout the years. No matter where you stand on the issue of the most recent policy allowing women in combat, you can’t contest that women have been willing and able to hold similar, if not equal positions in the military. But we’re not here to debate that.
As a military service company that has been around for the last four years catering to the men and women who have served or are currently serving, we strive to recognize and celebrate all of the sacrifices that both men and women have given by serving in the military.
Of course, March is Women’s History Month, and we are celebrating the women who presently make up about 20% of the military combined (http://www.vision-strike-wear.com/ALL-MILITARY-SHIRTS.html
). Much of our research is that of “firsts”. The first woman to make a parachute jump in Bolivia was Pfc. Maureen Daughertry in 1986. Before that, the first woman to enlist in the U.S. Navy was Loretta Walsh in 1917. Opha M. Johnson made history as the first woman to enlist in the Marine Corp during WWII. In 1940, Pauline Gower becomes England’s first female military pilot. While many women who enlisted in the early days of the military mainly took up clerical and other administrative positions to free up the men to fight in wars, history has proven that women want to and can do more. Vision-Strike-Wear.Com
honors our brave women in the military with a featured promotion for March just for them. “iamwoman”
, the promotion code we chose for this month, is telling of the courage and strength these women have within themselves to serve in the military and now more recently allowed on the front lines.
We take pride in providing designs that exemplify your pride and honor in your service. As our mission and who we are as a company, we will continue to support our military men and women with designs you can be proud to show off and let others know you were brave enough to serve.Photo:
