This Day in History June 28, 1976

Kind of interesting feature today.  It was on this date i n 1976, that the first women were admitted to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado.  There was a total of 157 women, and in 1980, 97 of those women graduated.  

I find it interesting that it took so long for this sort of thing to occur.  But then again, women in the military is something that is still not widely promoted.  I know when I think of military, I think of men, not women.  Even I am influenced by the stereotypes.
