Remembering The Women Who Served

BY MARSHA FOUR


VVA was well represented in the many events surrounding Veterans Day and the tenth anniversary of the dedication of the Vietnam Womens Memorial.

VVA began its presence with a tent on the Mall that included our membership initiatives, women veterans' displays, and AVVA information. We also had displays by the Gold Star Mothers, VA Center for Women Veterans, VA Women's Health Program Office, VA Benefits, the Vet Center, the D.C. Office of Veterans Affairs, Vietnam Women Veterans, Circle of Sisters, and SDIT. We felt that inviting others with information pertinent to women veterans would be a great addition to our efforts because of the large number of women veterans in Washington for the tenth anniversary.

The events included a Sunday service at the National City Christian Church at Thomas Circle, "Remembering and Celebrating" the women who served; a luncheon on Monday at our anniversary home-bas hotel; and a first-ever color guard Pass and Review of the Vietnam Women's Memorial.
