Women Veterans Make History
"Let the generations know that women in uniform also guaranteed their freedom. That our resolve was just as great as the brave men who stood among us. ... That the tears fell just as hard for those we left behind us." -- As quoted in an NPR series,*† these words are carved into the ceiling of the Women's Memorial,*† which recently celebrated its 15th Anniversary.

About Women Veterans
Women are now the fastest-growing subgroup of U.S. Veterans. The number of women Veterans is expected to increase dramatically in the next 10 years, and VA health care services are in high demand by the women Veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Department of Veterans Affairs understands the health care needs of women Veterans and is committed to meeting these needs. Women Veterans served and they deserve the best quality care.
Special Notice for Women
The American Legion in Michigan has appointed several members to a special
Women Veterans Task Force to look into the issues that women veterans might
have. They are asking all women veterans, legion member or not, to contact them
via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number, address,
and any other information you would like to share with them. The task force will
then be able to start identifying the needs and concerns of our women veterans
and ways to address those issues and concerns.
