About

This website provides news articles, resources for and about Women Marines. It also serves as a central repository of information such as volunteer/chapter activities, accomplishments, plans, and awards.

We also collect member biographies, pictures and video interviews of Women Marine Association members within Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Ontario Canada. Women Marines have a story to tell. I encourage all women Marines, to contribute and help us collect each other’s stories and preserve them.

The WMA’s mission is to preserve and promote the history and traditions of women in the Marine Corps.  That is an enormous task and I hope that you will click, connect and contribute your time and help us spread the word about the Women Marines Association. Whether it’s through renewing your membership with the WMA, joining a local chapter or through monetary donations to help us continue our mission.
