Abstract:

This paper will look into the life of Cathy Williams and the circumstances that made her decide to join the Army. This study will also look into the circumstances that directly or indirectly prepared her for the tough military life especially for a woman like her. At the end she inspired many and was a shining example of what the late John F. Kennedy echoed in one of his great speeches that it is it is better not to ask what the country can do for an individual but what that same person can do for his or her country.
