The “Dog Tag” – Marcia Higgins, Museum Curator

Women of Valor

Welcome to the Dog Tag, Episode XII, Season 1 a podcast by the St. Charles County Veterans Museum.

Women have been serving in the military in one form or another for more than 200 years.  They have had to overcome decades of obstacles in order to be allowed to serve their country, and are now deployed in ever-increasing numbers, in combat roles and in leadership positions all around the world.  Today women make up 16% of the military and nearly 10% of veterans are women.  The SCCVM showcases the artifacts, uniforms, photos, and especially the stories, of numerous brave women from World War Two thru the present day. Our guest next week this week is the museum curator Marcia Higgins who will discuss highlights of the items on exhibit in the museum and tell stories about these women of valor.
