'It is special to me': Fort Bliss soldier is first Black woman to complete Army Ranger School
"If I could extend one pivotal shred of advice to any woman who will hear the call to serve in the U.S. Army, it would be this: Your legacy cannot outlive you if you refuse to live out your legacy. Today is the history of tomorrow, so it’s best to act accordingly.

At Stantec, we create opportunity by inviting, embracing, and celebrating differences. This includes a commitment to supporting those who serve or have served, and their families. Collectively, we foster a culture where everyone can bring their whole selves to work in an environment that is welcoming, accepting, safe, supportive, and free of judgement.

We provide resources to our Veterans as they transition from the public sector into the private consulting business, while actively encouraging open dialogue and support for all employees and families. We have enhanced our recruitment practices to include a job search option based on a military job or code and launched a Military and Veteran Advocate (MAVA) Employee Resource Group (ERG). Our nation is our community—and Veterans and their families are an important part of that community.
The Pritzker Military Museum & Library is a non-partisan, non-government museum and library that attempts to increase the public understanding of military history and the sacrifices made by the men and women who have served. In a democratic society, it is important for people of all viewpoints to have an open, public forum to discuss the past, present, and future of the military.

Through its collection and its programs, the Museum & Library is dedicated to serving as a forum for those discussions and preserving them for future generations. The mission of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library is to acquire and maintain an accessible collection of materials and to develop appropriate programs focusing on the citizen-soldier in the preservation of democracy.

Since opening in 2003, the Museum & Library has hosted more than 500 events featuring the country’s most acclaimed authors, historians, journalists, and scholars.  

The Pritzker Military Museum & Library is open to the public and features an extensive collection of books, artifacts, and rotating exhibits covering many eras and branches of the military. It is a center where citizens and soldiers come together to learn about military history and the role of the military in a democracy. The Pritzker Museum & Library is supported by its members and sponsors.
