We’re sharing the powerful stories of our nation’s servicewomen – their challenges, victories and achievements.
Rally Point: Sisterhood of Service
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. For our Rally Point: Sisterhood of Service, we welcomed 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.”
