Women’s Veterans Day June 2018-Texas

The National Association of American Veterans (NAAV) Inc., would like to announce a historic event taking place in Austin, Texas on Tuesday, June 12, 2018. This event is intended to “recognize women veterans of Texas.”

I saw the above announcement on Facebook so I had to investigate. Now I want to know why this is only a day in Texas and not the whole country. I don’t think Texans will mind if I showcase their day.

If you think about it, the nurses in the military for many, many years have been female. Women have also done other jobs and now we have female pilots, females on the ground in the front lines and female officers leading large groups of mixed sex soldiers. They have come to the front showing their capability and resourcefulness to get a hard job done. Following is a list of impressive females that have served the U.S. You can look up the link to read about them.

I have a lady friend that served during the Korean War. At that time in the U. S. ladies that went into the military were said to be either lesbian or whores. To this day my friend doesn’t openly admit she volunteered to serve her country because the stigma has stayed with her. I hope this day helps to alleviate that.
In my book anyone that serves their country (whichever one that might be) deserves special recognition as well as their families that support them on the home front. Nationalism is important to me. I hope it is to you to.
