This study provides a focused historical overview of women's military contributions and their steady integration into the Armed Forces since the War for Independence. Most of today's 1.7 million women veterans obtain all or most of their medical care costs outside the VA health care system, where their veteran status is rarely recognized or acknowledged. Several aspects of women's military service have been associated with adverse psychological and physical outcomes, and failure to assess women's veteran status, their deployment status, and military trauma history could delay identifying or treating such conditions.
