The U.S. Army Women's Foundation
Honor ~ Empower ~ Connect
Today, we honor generations of patriots who have earned the title of “American Veteran” — a badge of courage that unites the finest group of service members the world has ever known. With their selfless sacrifice, our Armed Forces have forged and defended the very idea of America — a promise of freedom and equality, democracy and justice, possibility and hope. We owe you an incredible debt that can never be fully repaid.
Honor the Legacy of Veterans through the Digital Memorial
This Veterans Day and every day, honor the memory of those who have served and sacrificed with the Veterans Legacy Memorial (VLM). VLM is dedicated to the memory of nearly 4.5 million Veterans interred at state, territory, and national cemeteries across the country.
November is Native American Heritage Month
Every November the Army celebrates National American Indian Heritage Month. During this month, Army leadership encourages the entire Army family to recognize and express appreciation for the past and present contributions of Native American Soldiers, Veterans, civilians and Family members.

Mentorship Thought: 
Military and Civilian Leaders should always ask themselves 3 questions when communicating with subordinates:
  1. What did I say?
  2. What did they hear?
  3. What did I mean?
