WOMEN VETERANS SUMMIT
VVA will have an information table and will participate in
a workshop on homeless women veterans at the VA-sponsored
4th National Summit on Women Veterans’ Issues, which
will be held June 20-22 in Washington. We look forward to
this national summit, which is held every four years. At
least four committee members will attend. For details, see
the Women Veterans Committee web page.
Veterans Day, November 11, marks the 15th anniversary of
the dedication of the Vietnam Women’s Memorial. VVA
again will sponsor the Color Guard Pass in Review Ceremony.
Please pass this information on to all you know. Bruce Whitaker
will help coordinate the Pass in Review, as he did five years
ago. If your chapter wants to participate, email Bwhitaker@vva.org We hope to make this a memorable commemoration.
