Should women serve in combat positions? The Combat Exclusion Law has dealt with this question since the 1940’s. As time continues, the question remains. The military has increased the percentage of females allowed to be enlisted and commissioned in the services as well as increasing the positions allotted to them (Matthews, Ender, Laurence, & Rohall, 2009). Keenan posits “women have served with distinction in … the Revolutionary War…as volunteer nurses and were only occasionally in the direct line of fire…four nurses evacuating 42 patients while the Germans bombed their field hospital…” (the DoD Combat Exclusion Policy) pg.
Some companies give unemployed workers a job opportunity that will work for them. This increases financial security of the people who are able to work, but not able to find employment. In companies that there are no available positions, you may choose to donate money. This money will go toward ensuring that there are lower income housing options for the people who are homeless because of their financial situation. Eradicating poverty may seem difficult, but it is relatively simple.
The first enlisted women served in World War I as telephone and radio operators, translators, and clerks. But it was not until World War II that women became part of the regular military. Each service had its own women's corps commanded by female officers. The first of these units, the Women's Army Corps (WACs), enlisted 400,000 women during the war to work in jobs that freed men to fight. Following the war, the Women's Services Integration Act of 1948 established a permanent place for women in all branches of the military.
This decision would leave the employees struggling financially but they would remain employed. Another option is to either let go of a few workers or institute part-time jobs and continue paying the rest of the workers a higher wage, which would not only result in unemployment for some but the remaining workers would question their job security. Last option for Taylor is to continue her business the way it is and handle the financial strain herself. Unfortunately, with the given conditions this option could prove to be detrimental for everyone in the long run.

“Assigning women to combat is a radical attack on the natural complementary of the sexes.” (Kirkwood) We live in a time where women can run for president and leave the house instead of staying home as a housewife. Women are competing in the Olympics and becoming cops. So the question is, “should women be allowed in combat?” Women have been in combat since the late 1700s so why not let it stay that way. Women should be allowed in combat because they are already serving in combat. Research from the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services (DACOWITS) shows that a positive impact was resulted from women who contributed to combat in Iraq (Women Should be…).
During the times of the Revolutionary War women would follow their husbands to war camps to serve as cooks and nurses as well as to fight alongside their spouse, for this reason many women became known as “camp followers” (Time Line: Women in the U.S. Military).

The purpose of this essay is to explain and provide information concerning the bravery and trials our Nations World War II Nurses endured. During World War II the need for Army Nurses was so great that the Army Nurse Corps started allowing healthy willing women to join, and the United States Military found many uses for these eager ladies. The change in American society during World War II included more opportunities and a higher status for American Women Nurses with increasing educational advantages provided by the government. Complications with staffing and medical supplies during the bombings of Pearl Harbor, Schofield Hospital, and Hickam Field shows their ability to handle pressure and be useful in crisis situations. A new field training was then developed for all newly commissioned nurses, by Lt. Gen. Brehan B. Somervell the Commanding General of the Army Service Forces.
They thought perhaps, that if they made these smaller, hard working jobs exciting, and noble, that more women would begin to join the work force. For this reason, the media created a fake working woman named Rosie the Riveter, and she was illustrated as a hero for American women. These efforts to pull women into working through magazines worked, more than six million women joined the workforce during war. Therefore, magazines helped to paint a picture of the average women taking a hard working wartime job, and at the same time advertised for other women to do the same. Magazines in 1943 provided articles of women hard at work during war.
When they found out that each side was in need of nurses, women immediately started volunteering to “help the war efforts of their side” (Freemon, 1998). Most of the women focused on helping wounded and sick soldiers (Freemon, 1998).
