Episode Guide »
Margaret Corbin sheds her blood fighting in the Revolution. Years later, in Afghanistan, Leigh Ann Hester becomes the first woman to receive the Silver Star for combat heroism. Nurses have been in harm's way since the Civil War and during WW I thousands of women volunteer for service as Navy Yeomanettes and Army Signal Corp "Hello Girls." In a world where front lines no longer exist, America's female patriots confront the horrors of war as never before and more suffer the effects of combat stress than at any time in the Nation's history.
