With July 4th just days away, we pause to remember our country’s independence and the brave men and women who dedicate their lives to keep it the “land of the free and the home of the brave“.
On Tuesday night, the Southeast Steuben County Library held “Women of World War II: On the Front Lines and the Home Front“, as part of its summer adult programming series. The program talks about how instrumental women were during World War II, both in the military and as civilians.
“American women had so many roles during World War 2 that have been overlooked,” said author Barb Warner Deane. ” They were involved in the military from the Army, the Navy, the Coast Guard, the Marines, and the Airforce. The war would not have turned out the way it did if it were not for the roles of American women during the war.”
Deane, an avid lover of history has written 4 novels about women and their contributions. For access to her website, click here.
