On January 24, 2013, the WVHP curator was contacted by The New Yorker. They asked to use some of the images of “our” veterans in an online slide show that illustrated a story discussing the Pentagon’s decision to end the ban on women in combat. 9 of the 11 images are of WVHP vets. These women’s service eras ranged from WWII to the Iraq War.

This year’s UNCG Libraries’ travel grant recipient, Andi Gustavson, spent a week looking at ALMOST ALL of the WVHP collections for research for her dissertation.
