Newsletter – March 2024

Hello SCRA Members! 

A note from Amy Tuschen our National Director  

March is Women’s History Month. Women have been a vital part of the US Army Signal Corps going back to over 100 years ago with the support women provided during WWI that colloquially became known as the “Hello Girls”.    

Our partner 501(c)3, the SCMS has a video we produced explaining their role, and the impact they had on the war effort.  You can find this and more historical shorts on our YouTube channel.  Be sure to like and subscribe to see additional items as they are added.   

The WWI Centennial Commission is working to award the Hello Girls a Congressional Gold Medal for their efforts.  Please see this link to find and contact your representatives to encourage them to support this worthy cause.  Hello Girls Congress – World War I Centennial (
