Courage & Commitment:
A Salute to Women in the Military
Every Year’s Tattoo is different. In 2019, we will have an extraordinary cast of hundreds of performers from around the world and the centerpiece of this spectacular celebration will be a moving Salute to Women in the Military.
Just one hundred years ago, women were allowed to serve in uniform for the first time. More than 30,000 volunteered during the First World War. Today, one sixth of all Active-Duty service members are women and these 230,000+ women serve in every branch in virtually every capacity.
“Let the generations know that women in uniform also guaranteed their freedom.”
Dr. Mary Edwards Walker, Medal of Honor Recipient
Generation after generation of women have shown not only the courage to protect the nation in times of war, but the commitment to change the nation for the better from within. In signature Tattoo style, we will tell their stories.
