Medallion of Strength: Celebrating Women Veterans

A tangible way to identify and acknowledge women Veterans that celebrate their identity and contributions of service to the nation.

Women who honorably served in the U.S. Military are Veterans – to some this is a no-brainer but others do not see themselves as Veterans. Women Veterans don’t have many options when it comes to showing our Pride in service – but now they do.

The Center for Women Veterans and Veterans Engagement Office collaborated to bring you “The Medallion of Strength.”

The Medallion of Strength serves as a unique marker that can make women Veterans feel more seen, celebrated, and acknowledged for their service as a Veteran, it provides a way to visibly show that women are a part of the Veteran community and encourages community and connection with other Veterans.

What is it for?

The Medallion can be worn to showcase pride about being a woman Veteran, it can be added to social media profiles to highlight this part of their identity, be displayed by VA and/or businesses to indicate service or support resources they may have for women Veterans, showcase support for women Veterans.

We didn’t want to hold on to this gem – we wanted to release it so that women Veterans everywhere can start using but be on the lookout for more information about the Medallion and ways we plan to use it to bring awareness to the service of our women Veterans.
