Happy Thanksgiving from WVA!
On November 11th, Women Veterans Alliance received a brick that was placed outside of the Mather VA Hospital.  This brick is to acknowledge women who have proudly and continue to serve. View all  photos.

With most people not realizing that there are over 2 million women that have served our country and this number is rapidly growing. These dedicated women can be found nationwide, but go largely unrecognized in our communities. As a society, when Veterans are thought of women almost never come to mind. This oversight is so prevalent that statistics show that some of our women veterans do not identify themselves as Veterans.  Read more of the article "Women Veterans: Invisible Warriors"  here.

A recent survey shows, "  71% of women veterans surveyed didn't belong to a veteran service organization, a possible symptom of a perceived disconnect between the male-focused community they offer and the needs of female veterans. One-third of survey respondents said that they actually didn't feel welcome in existing veteran service organizations.".

Women Veterans Alliance is providing a long over due solution by connecting women with other women.  Not only providing these ladies with community but also connecting them with benefits and resources.     www.WomenVeteransAlliance.org
