VA Celebrates Women’s History Month

March 18, 2013

March is Women’s History Month. Throughout the month, the Department of Veterans Affairs salutes women Veterans for doing their part to secure the liberties of this great nation. Women have always voluntarily served — in peacetime and in times of conflict — and persistently proven their dedication and strength in the military roles they assume. Today, women are represented throughout the military and consistently prove they are capable of fulfilling complicated, dangerous tasks. They fly combat sorties, serve on submarines, fight on the front lines, and perform various duties to ensure military readiness. During Women’s History Month, please thank the women Veterans around you for their contributions to history. Save the date for a special Salute to Women Veterans by VA on March 21.
