BACKGROUND:     

 The “Women are Veterans, Too!” Expo is a new initiative coordinated by the Charles Wilson VA Outpatient Clinic to bring women Veterans from all eras together with information about the wide range of programs and services VA provides. Many times, people forget that females comprise 7.5 percent of the total Veteran population.

More than 230,000 women Veterans have served in the Middle East since 2001. More than 650 have been wounded and 120 have died, according to the Department of Defense.
