Women have served in the U.S. Army since 1775. Currently, female soldiers and personnel serve in 95 percent of all Army occupations and make up about 15.7 percent of the active Army. Women are also the fastest-growing group within the U.S. Army veteran community. All VA Medical Centers in the United States have Women Veterans Program managers to help female veterans get the medical, mental health and specialty care they may need.
