Pioneering

June was one of the first women to have a baby and continue serving in the army

June Lenechan - pioneer

If June had become pregnant before 1990 she would have had 2 options, leave the army or get an abortion.

June was one of the first women to have a baby and continue her military career, overcoming prejudice and a lack of any formal support.

Her grit and determination helped her through a 5 year tour while being a mother. 

You won't last very long...we've already got a replacement
Famous last words from June's Staff Sargeant
