Abstract : This Doctoral Dissertation recounts a partial history of Women in the United States Military from 1940 to 1973. As the title implies, it is a history that is frequently 'forgotten' either through disingenuousness or due to ideological bias. The debate on women in combat will doubtless continue but this Thesis will also add some much needed information on the role that women have played, and the contributions they have made to their nation's defense.
