Honor Military Women for Veterans Day

September 25, 2018

Now that Labor Day has passed, it is time to begin thinking about club Veteran’s Day observances. Because of social ideas about the female experience, women have often been written out of U.S. military history. Yet their patriotic duty has inspired women to support their country during our times of need. The bravery of countless women since the establishment of our country gives us a legacy of strength and persistence from our early wars when women played a supportive role as water bearers, cooks, and laundresses to present day when women serve in active duty roles as nurses, combat field commanders, and officers.

Make November 11 a day to be remembered for military women in your communities! And don’t forget retired women veterans by contacting your local VFW’s or American Legion Posts for possible assistance.
