Women Marines Association DC-1 Chapter

Women Marines Association DC-1 Chapter DC-1 was the first chapter established by the Women Marines Association’s in 1962. All Women Marines -- active duty, reserve, veterans & retirees -- are welcome to join us.

DC-1 fosters camaraderie, patriotism, service, and love of our beloved Corps. Chapter Name: District of Columbia Chapter One Co-Host: Virginia Chapter One It is with excitement that DC-1 and VA-1 submit a proposal to host the 2018 Women Marines Association (WMA) Biennial Convention and Professional Development Conference in the capital of the United States and birth place of the first WMA Chapter - in Washington, DC. Washington, DC is the perfect location to celebrate the 100th anniversary (or Centennial) of women in the Marine Corps. With the signing of the Residence Act on July 16, 1790, it approved the creation of a capital district located along the Potomac River on the country's East Coast. As permitted by the U.S. Constitution, the District is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Congress and is therefore not a part of any U.S. state. DC-1 and VA-1 await the opportunity to celebrate our Centennial in an area that has something for everyone to enjoy. Being in close proximity of military installations, we have access to logistical support assistance in making your trip a memorable one to reflect on the past, present, and future. Come enjoy an evening Parade at 8th and I with the Presidents Own Band, a trip to The Marine Corps War Memorial and a trip to the National Museum of the Marine Corps. This is the home of the only Women’s Memorial that celebrates women from each of the services at the Women in Military Service for America Memorial (WIMSA) at the gates of Arlington Cemetery. We have the Crossroads of the Marine Corps and most Marine Corps History within our reach. We are proposing The Marriott Gateway in Crystal City, Virginia where the 2000 convention was held. This facility provides complimentary shuttle transportation to/from Washington, DC’s Ronald Reagan National Airport. Public transportation via metro is onsite for exploring the city without worrying about parking and parking fees. Access to military bases: Marine Corps Base Quantico, Joint Base Henderson Hall/Fort Meyer, Fort Belvoir, Joint Base Anacostia/Bolling and Andrews Air Force Base The theme of the convention will be Celebrating 100 Years of Women in the Marine Corps. We are working on celebrating this Centennial in the city where it all happens for the United States of America – our capital, Washington, DC.

OOHRAH!

Just one day after being authorized in 1918 to do so, Opha May Johnson wrote a new chapter in history when she became the first woman to enlist in the United States Marine Corps to serve during World War I, opening doors and breaking barriers throughout the sea services.

I remember that first day like yesterday!
