Celebrating Women as United States Veterans

See also

It is not easy in a world made for men. There are some women out there that do more than compete, though, they give their all! This means they risk life and limb just as the men do to keep their country safe from harm.

However, despite their courageous service, many of these women still feel as though they are “invisible veterans. This has been the same feeling women have had since the creation of the Army Nurse Corps in 1901! In this instance, we are not moving forward one iota.

Perhaps if we all take a stand, like the Disable American Veterans (DAV) group is doing, we can prevent women that serve stop feeling as though they are insignificant in the eyes of the public. Especially since Mother’s Day is just around the corner!

The women that feel it necessary to take on such a humbling role often must do so at the expense of their family members; leaving their children behind as they are thrust into battle for the betterment of society. Wouldn’t it be great for us all to take a stand for these unstoppable heroes, honoring their service and sacrifice this Mother’s Day?

Many of these veterans have endured a long and difficult battle just to be recognized by the American public. All they would like is a bit of care and concern…and understanding. They never let their needs come before that of our countries though; they continually display their patriotism and fighting spirit.

More and more women are answering the call of our nation. Did you know that it is estimated that by the year 2040 that one in five veterans will be a woman?

Don’t you think it is time to recognize these brave females for their sacrifice and commitment and give them the same recognition that every veteran deserves? Many believe it is the perfect time to rally around these heroes through DAV!

Thanks to the willingness to support the women serving our country, DAV is known as their staunch ally; a louder voice than they have been able to raise on their own. DAV believes the public should realize that women veterans serve in every branch at every rank possible in our military. In fact, DAV is proud of these women veterans just as they are of every man that serves!

So, this Mother’s Day, look around you. Do what you can to recognize ALL veterans! Go up and shake their hand for they are the most charitable people of our nation; sacrificing their lives so that we can live ours in peace and freedom!

Many of us do appreciate your dedicated, charitable service. Happy Mother’s Day to you!
