Breaking Barriers: Women in the Military | October 17, 2020–January 16, 2021 For centuries, women have helped to defend the nation in times of war and conflict. In this tribute to those who served, the Dunn Museum shares unique Lake County stories and explores women’s roles as nurses, auxiliary personnel, enlistees, and officers in the U.S. military. The nation’s struggle was their struggle, and women wanted to have a larger role, equal to men in responsibility and risk.
