U.S. Army SGT. Jason Mike and SGT. Leigh Ann Hester, from 617th Military Police Company, Kentucky Army National Guard (KYARNG), stand at the Army Women's Museum and Global War on Terrorism exhibit.  The exhibit showcases the contributions women have made in the war and features as the centerpiece a life-size diorama of the actions of Hester and her squad-mates during a March 20, 2005 ambush by insurgents near Baghdad.  As a result of SGT. Hester's acts of bravery and accomplishments, she was awarded the Silver Star Medal, becoming the first woman to receive the medal since World War II.
