During the month of March, the Disabled Veterans National Foundation plans on recognizing female veterans for their service.
With an initiative to celebrate women who have served, the organization strives to highlight the importance of their service in the military, and to thank them for all they have sacrificed.
“It is a sad reality that there are still many women who have served who do not even consider themselves veterans,” said DVNF CEO Joseph VanFonda (SgtMaj Ret). “These women have been every bit as important to the operations of our military as men, and they deserve proper recognition for their major contributions.”
Founded in the fall of 2007, the nonprofit veterans service organization focuses on helping men and women who serve and return home wounded or sick after defending the country's safety and freedom.
Celebrated since 1981, March was declared Women's History Month and is recognized in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
