The U.S. Army War College and U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center will commemorate Women's History Month by sharing the history of women in the U.S. Army with our younger generations. Women's Children's Author Claudia Friddell will share her three books in a special program specifically intended for our youth audience: - George Washington’s Spies! - Totally True Adventures (2016); - To the Front! Clara Barton Braves the Battle of Antietam (2022); - Grace Banker and her Hello Girls Answer the Call: The Heroic Story of WWI Telephone Operations (2021). Claudia’s books will be on sale in advance at the USAHEC Foundation Bookstore, and on the day of the event. Parents are encouraged to obtain the books in advance of the program, so that their children can be familiar with the stories to enhance their experience. Although the program is specifically intended for our younger audience, the program will be appropriate and enjoyable for all age groups. There is no admission charge for this event.
