Women Veterans with Disabilities are Valued

Pictures of Claudia Baldwin, Heather Osborne, Zorina Pritchett and Missina SchallusDuring the month of April, the Center for Women Veterans is highlighting, “Women Veterans with Disabilities are Valued.” The purpose is to raise national awareness of the contributions of women Veterans with disabilities and to tell their story of resilience. Though not always easy, these women Veterans demonstrate that they WILL NOT allow their disability to prevent them from living their best life. Our goal is to increase awareness of women Veterans, in both VA and in the public, and to encourage women Veterans to choose VA for their total body wellness.

Women Veteran Trailblazers Initiative

Fifteen women Veterans representing all branches of service is featured in the Center for Women Veteran’s (CWV) 2019 Campaign “Trailblazers: Women Breaking Barriers.” Each year CWV sponsors an annual campaign to celebrate the contributions of women Veterans. The 2019 Campaign launched on March 6, 2019, in honor of Women’s History Month and will continue throughout the year to celebrate women Veterans’ contributions during and after military service.

This powerful Campaign highlights the experiences and contributions of 15 women Veterans and provides VA the opportunity to share stories about how their military service and unique experiences led to their continued roles as leaders and advocates in the communities where they live and work.

Women Veteran Athletes Initiative

Women Veteran AthletesTo raise national awareness of the service, diversity, and resilience of women Veterans, CWV will host an exhibit featuring 10 women Veteran Athletes which will travel to VA facilities nationwide.  We hope to increase awareness of women Veterans, both in VA and in the public, and to encourage women Veterans to choose VA to support their health and wellness goals.
