Micki McElya Featured in New York Times Article

UConn History Professor Micki McElya has been featured in a New York Times article about the first time that women performed the changing of the guard at Arlington National Cemetery in 84 years. Last week,  Sergeant Porterfield and two other soldiers walked with her and participated in the sacred duty. According to Prof. McElya, “the images of the three female soldiers were a “visual marker” of the often unrecognized sacrifices that women and other marginalized people in the United States have made for the military.”
