Women have played a role in major combats throughout history.
Women played an even bigger role in World War II. Approximately 400,000 U.S. women served with the armed forces and more than 460 lost their lives as a result, including 16 from enemy fire. Several hundred thousand women served in combat roles, especially in anti-aircraft units, while others filled out the home labor force front, nicknamed "Rosie the Riveters."
