Pitt-Greensburg welcomes Colonel Nancy P. Anderson, USMC, retired, to campus as part of its women’s history month activities. In this Meet the Author event, she will showcase her book “The Very Few, The Proud Women in the Marine Corps, 1977-2001” (History Division, US Marine Corps, 2018). This event is free and open to the public.
Anderson made her mark in women’s history when, in 1977 as a 1st Lieutenant, she became the first female platoon commander when the Marine Corps’ Officer Candidates School (OCS) at Quantico was gender-integrated, and she led the first three gender-integrated OCS companies. Anderson’s career encompassed the time between the dissolution of the separate Women Marines and the 2001 terrorist attacks.
