Women have served in the military from the American Revolution to the present, and roughly 15 percent of all veterans are women. Unfortunately, women have been historically underrepresented in utilizing the benefits provided for them, and have often been more reticent in claiming their veteran status. The Department of Veterans Affairs is committed to ensuring that benefits and services for women veterans are made as accessible as possible, and has created a number of outreach programs and revised guidelines toward this end.
District 14 Women Veterans Chairman is Angela Santos of VFW Post 9191, 512-525-3325 and her e-mail is Melodycool68@gmail.com.
