On the Front Lines of Change: A Conversation with Female Veterans

Dec 19, 2016

Last year was a landmark year for the U.S. military and its servicemembers. For the first time, women were granted equal access to all military combat roles

This hour, we take a closer look at the military's gender integration efforts and consider what the future holds under President-elect Trump.

Are you a female veteran? Do you know a woman who has served? We want to hear from you.
