We honor the women who looked beyond their roles as mother, daughter, wife, partner and sister and took up the call to serve our nation. These women took on challenges with fortitude and resilience and never gave up. On Saturday, March 5, 2022, we were joined by U.S. Army active-duty service member Lt. Colonel Katie Crombe and U.S. Army Veteran Christine Schwartz. These sisters are also part of our new exhibition The Twenty-Year War: Our Next Greatest Generation.

Lieutenant Colonel Katie Crombe is an active-duty strategic planning officer. She joined the U.S. Army in 2003. In 2018, she became the aide-de-camp to General Joseph Votel, who was the commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) at the time.

Christine Schwartz is a U.S. Army Veteran who deployed in 2011 as a 92A quartermaster officer. She deployed to Afghanistan as executive officer of a supply company doing re-supply runs to line units. She now leads Service to School, which is a non-profit to help veterans apply and get accepted to top-tier colleges, including the Ivy League.
