    This was fantastic, Desi. Thank you so much for posting it, and for the research. I had no idea these female heroes existed.

    Women played a crucial role in both World War 1 and World War 2. Not as combat troops or nurses. They kept the factories running that produced tanks, bullets, bazookas, rifles, ships and bombers. Without women in the factories the allies would not have won. Simple as that. Rosie the Riveter was far more important for the war effort.

    I know that factory production is not as glamorous as charging into battle or landing on the beaches of Normandy but you don’t win a war without logistics and factories that produce stuff.

    Hey Daily Show, love this topic but there is a big mistake in this video. Demi Moore is non-binary and their pronouns are they/them not she/her.

    Thank You so very much for this highly truthful Historical Story of Our Women in Uniform and the most important part they played in Fighting for the freedom of the USA! This story needed to be Told for all of America to See & Hear and I hope this Story doesn’t fall on DEAF Ears or Eyes! Men Now there is No way for You to take credit for Winning & fighting in the Wars to maintain Our Freedom for Democracy that Now seems to be Slipping away because our way of Life is under Threat to become an AUTOCRACY and We as a Nation Can not Exist no longer as the Beacon for the World as the Leader for Freedom & Democracy! Please Dear Lord Watch Over Our Nation and Keep Us Safe from this Oppression that Threatens our Beloved Country, AMEN!!!

    As long as physical strength isn’t involved, men and women are equal in every way, a women with a gun is equally dangerous as a man with a gun.
