First female army officer commissioned on May Flower replica – Boston News, Weather, Sports

PLYMOUTH, MASS. (WHDH) – Lieutenant Jacqueline Hall made history Wednesday for being the first female army officer to be commissioned on the May Flower replica.

Hall was 17 when she enlisted in the army and is the descendant of a pilgrim.

“We’re on the May Flower because my descendant, Isaac Atherton, came over on the May Flower so I am the first female army officer to be commissioned on the May Flower,” said Hall. “He [Atherton] came over here and struggled; looking for a better life and that is what America is about.”

Hall received her first salute as a commissioned officer from her husband, who is also in the military.
