News about women veterans is arriving often in this Chair’s mailbox.  My goal is to keep NYS Women, Inc. members informed, and my hope is that with President Jacquie Shellman’s support and enthusiasm, you may just find something that sparks interest and action ideas from these monthly Committee messages.  

Do you want to light up the face of a special Veteran? Have you been wondering how to tell your Veteran they are special to you? VA’s #VeteranOfTheDay social media feature is an opportunity to highlight your Veteran and his/her service. Do you know a veteran (female or male) you could nominate?

#VeteranOfTheDay on 07/01/2020 was Air Force Veteran, Kim Reid, who served as a knowledge operations manager in Afghanistan, Iraq and Qatar. Kim Reid served in the Air Force as a knowledge operations manager from February 2006 to November 2012.
