Did you know that women have been serving in the military since the Revolutionary War?
Wanting to make a difference, passion and a sense of service led some women to to disguise themselves as men to be accepted in the military. Thankfully we don’t have to do that anymore! Our Country has come a long way since then and three women have achieved the Four Star Rank (Admiral Michelle Howard, US Navy; General Janet Wolfenbarger, US Air Force; and General Ann Dunwoody, US Army).
We ask you to join us on October 30th, 11:30am – 1:30pm, to recognize military women during our Annual Salute to Women of the Military: Past and Present luncheon. Lunch will be served at 12:00pm at the Havelock Tourist and Event Center.
We are honored to have General Wilma Vaught USAF (RET) join us as this year’s Guest Speaker. General Vaught is president of the Women In Military Service For America Memorial in Washington, DC.
