Throughout our history, the important contributions of women in our nation’s defense and as part of the Veteran population cannot be overstated. During Women’s History Month in March, we remember women who served our nation throughout history. This observance grants deserved recognition and acknowledges the achievements of women in the military.
For generations, women Veterans have honorably served America’s wars and conflicts throughout our history. Although women were not formally under military command until the early 20th century, they have served in various capacities, beginning with the Revolutionary War.
Women Veterans continue to break barriers today modeling national service for generations to follow. Women use the skills and experiences from their military service to make achievements in their careers, contributions to their communities, and to become public service leaders. WDVA is committed to recognizing and honoring these achievements and providing women Veterans with the benefits and services they earned and deserve.
For your dedicated service, strength and courage, WDVA salutes you!
