The article focuses on "Women of Four Wars," an online presentation from the U.S. Library of Congress that offers interviews from women who served in the Korean and Vietnam wars and veterans of the Persian Gulf and Iraq-Afghanistan conflicts. The presentation is accessible on the Veterans History Project Web site at www.loc.gov/vet/. Bob Patrick, director the Veterans History Project, claims that the presentation is a call to action for volunteer interviewers to record the stories of U.S. female wartime veterans. Some of the women veterans featured in the presentation include Helen Eileen Hause, an Air Force flight nurse, and Holly Harrison of the Coast Guard.
