The 2 p.m. lecture is free with admission to the museum, 9404 E. Marginal Way S., Seattle, Exit 158, off Interstate 5 on Boeing Field.

Janko’s stories range from when women disguised themselves as men to fight in the Revolutionary War, to more recent times signaling the first women serving on board ships, flying combat missions and becoming Army Rangers.
