HOUSTON, Texas -- In 1948, President Harry Truman signed into law the Women's Armed Services Integration Act, which allowed women to serve as members of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps.

In the years since, women have excelled in the U.S. armed forces. Houston city leaders celebrated the 75th anniversary of the act on June 12th by recognizing a group of trailblazing ladies.
