To coincide with Women’s History Month, the stories of ten women veteran athletes will be displayed at Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers around the country in March as part of the Women Veteran Athletes Initiative. The ten women veteran athletes represent all branches of the armed services, and were selected by VA and its partners. The displays will include photos of the women in and out of uniform. After March, the displays will travel to additional VA facilities. For information about VA’s benefits and services for women veterans, as well as the Women Veteran Athletes Initiative, visit the Center for Women Veterans website.
