American women have long answered the call to come to the aid of this country in times of war. Since 1948 alone, when they were authorized to serve in combat, more than 2,000,000 have volunteered to swear an oath of allegiance and defend the nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
The Mission and Goals of Monument to Women Veterans Foundation is:
To pursue the development of a monument that would honor the military women who have served their country and provide often unmet critical resources for female Veteran care.
The Monument to Women Veterans Foundation advocates the establishment of a national monument recognizing the service and sacrifices of all women who have proudly donned a United States armed services uniform, but further seeks to provide resources and services for a myriad of issues currently impacting Women Veterans to include PTSD/MTBI, sexual assault, sexual harassment, unemployment, homelessness and countless others that may arise in the future.
Ultimately, the Monument to Women’s Veterans will serve as a gateway to specialized services available to female Veterans throughout Florida’s Gulf Coast. Women Veterans are encouraged to visit and enjoy the sense of community with fellow female patriots from across the United States.
