Brig. Gen. Marcela Monahan [right], assistant deputy commandant for Combat Development and Integration, places one of her general officer rank insignia (stars) on Daisy Losack at a reception following a commemorative event at the Women’s Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery March 9. Losack is a former Marine sergeant who served during the Korean War era. The event was held to commemorate women servicemembers from the conflict. During the Korean War, Losack served as an administrative specialist at Camp Pendleton, Calif. In August 1950, the Women Reserves were mobilized for the Korean War; the number of women on active duty in the Marine Corps peaked at 2,787. Prior to the Korean War, only a few of the women who had seen military service were granted a commission in the regular service. These ladies paved the way for the women in service today.
