**Honoring Women in the Military**

Nearly 3 million women have served in and
with the U.S. military. The women in the
Military Service for American Memorial honors
the contributions of service women past,
present,and future.
Dedicated in 1997, the memorial is located at
the entrance to Arlington National Cemetery,
outside the nation's capital. The 30,000
square-foot monument and museum is
devoted to telling the stories of women who
have helped defend the nation since the
American Revolution.
Photos, uniforms and other artifacts are
exibited, documenting the many jobs women have held for the country's defense, from nurse to fighter pilot. A hall of honor recognizes those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, were held prisoners of war, or received awards for service and valor.
The heart at the memorial is an interactive, computerized register that has the goal of
including every woman who has served.
Currently,
the database has the names, photos
and histories of about 270,000 women,
and visitors can look up their grandmother,
mother or friend.
Female veterans or family and friends of
women veterans are encouraged to
register zt the memorial website.

~*~ Bowled Over by Cereal ~*~

In the early 1800's cereal was invented
as a health food. Cereal is so popular now,
that National Cereal Day is held on March 7th.

About 2.7 billion boxes of cereal are
sold in the U.S. every year.

Cheerios were called Cheerioats when
they debuted in 1941. The name changed
four years later.

Kellogg's Corn Flakes was the first
cereal to offer a prize, a picture book,
in the early 1900's.

The first athlete to appear on a
Wheaties box was the baseball
great - Lou Gehig in 1934.

Grape-Nuts were included in some U.S.
military rations during WWII.

The marshmallows in Lucky Charms
have a name; they're called marbits.
