Mass. corps votes in first female members
Guard officers join Ancient, Honorable
After 374 years, change doesn’t come often for the the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts. But last week, the military organization broke with tradition: Members for the first time voted two women into their ranks. “This is pretty significant. Augusta National is just now bringing women into their golf club,” said Lt. Robert Gunderson, “and they weren’t hanging out 374 years ago.” Lt. Colonel Catherine M. Corkery and Lt. Colonel Christine Hoffmann were voted into the group last Tuesday.
