Women in the military : an unfinished revolution by Jeanne Holm( Book )

25 editions published between 1982 and 2009 in English and held by 2,271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This revised edition of Maj. Gen. Jeanne Holm's classic work on the history and role of women in the U.S. armed forces brings the reader up to date by covering the role of American military women in all post-Vietnam military operations - including the recent Persian Gulf war. Just as important is her discussion of the changing role of women in the military during the 1980s and the current debate over combat exclusion law and policies. From the day Molly Pitcher fired her cannon without congressional sanction at the Battle of Monmouth in 1778 until 1948, when women were accorded full legal status in the regular armed services, the military was viewed as a wholly masculine preserve. During the Revolution and Civil War, women were forced to disguise themselves as men order to gain access to the ranks. The fight against the "built-in institutional resistance of the tradition-bound military subculture" is a large part of General Holm's story. Women's battle for status and recognition is the other part. Women always had to be superior to male counterparts in education and moral standing. Uniforms and accommodations were major stumbling blocks. The "emphasis was most often on bathrooms, not bullets," General Holm observes. Although women are now an integral part of each of the services, the controversy is far from over; the revolution continues. But, as recent events have so aptly demonstrated, it is now impossible for America to go to war without its women
In defense of a nation : servicewomen in World War II( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A history of American servicewomen in WW2 and their often unacknowledged but heroic performance. Only the Army (Army Nurse Corps) was less than reluctant to engage women in any form of service equality. The Navy, Coast Guard and Marines were slow to come on board. For much of WW2 black servicewomen had to serve in segregated units. Holm explains the fact that the military relaxed many provisos during and after the war reflected the respect women gained in nursing, reserves, air force service, and auxiliary tasks like the American Red Cross, the United Service Organization, the Public Health Service, and the Cadet Nurse Corps

Knowledge management in the space industry( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of this e-book is to report on the knowledge management activities taking place within the space industry. This special issue provides a valuable insight into selecting and implementing KM strategies for an organization. A general theme drawn from the papers is that KM needs to be tied to the core issues and business drivers for that company or field. It is a common mistake for organizations to assume that KM solutions are "one-size-fits-all"; however, evidence from the space agency case studies suggests that each solution needs to tailored for each organization. The papers chosen for this special issue cover three main themes: cultural and organizational aspects of KM in the space industry, evolution of knowledge from long-duration space missions, and implementing lesson learned for space projects

The rise of avatars in positive psychology : enabling military cultures in a 3D world for strengths of character development( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To be sure, even with precision weapon systems offered by modern warfare technology, the warrior remains the most lethal weapon system on the modern battlefield, and is pivotal in the decision chain to know, decide and act wisely and decisively. For that reason, the apex of decisive advantage with force is ultimately dependent on the quality of how future warriors are developed in strengths of character in support of battle-wise sense making and performance. As I step back onto the tour boat and look once more at the monument to Leonidas and the 300 Spartans off in the distance, I sense others will come this way to learn from the past to better shape the future. "Stranger, tell the future that we behaved as they would wish us to.""--Conclusion
