I found an interesting resource today, Betty H. Carter Women Veteran Historical Project hosted by the University of North Carolina, Greensboro.
As they describe it:
The Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project documents the female experience in the U.S. Armed Forces through letters, papers, photographs, published materials, uniforms, artifacts, and oral histories. It contains more than 500 individual collections which includes 300 oral histories. Housed and maintained in the University Archives in Jackson Library, the materials are a research collection for scholars of military history as well as women's studies.
If you had a family member who served, and even if you didn't, it is fascinating to browse around the extensive collection.
