Photo of Jennie Biron
1917: Like her brothers, Jennie Biron wanted to serve her country. She enlisted in the military as a Yeomanette. Because women were barred from combat, she took her tour of duty at the Washington, D.C., Navy Yard. She later became an officer of the women veterans’ Jacob Jones American Legion Post #44.
