Honor. Empower. Connect.
Military Appreciation Month

It’s no secret that women play a vital role in today’s Army; they are the soldiers on the front lines; they dominate the skies as pilots and aircrew; they drive our trucks, fix our tanks, build our rifles, care for our wounded, train our recruits — you name it. The list is endless.

They are leaders all, officers and noncommissioned officers alike, standing with our troops.

MG Jody Daniels is an example of an exceptional leader. Read about her nomination as the Army Reserve's next commanding general.
Hunter Graham ’20 was nominated for the Pallas Athene Award from the Women’s Army Corps Veterans’ Association, an award given to the top two graduating female Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) cadets in the nation. The UVM ROTC program, which hosts Middlebury’s ROTC cadets, held its annual award ceremony online in April, where Graham and other cadets were celebrated.
