Women in the Military


(PHOENIX) – Today, nearly 14-percent of America’s servicemembers are women yet services for women veterans are not sufficient to stem a rising number of homeless women veterans on our cities streets.

That will be among the issues taken up by the first Arizona Military Women’s Conference being held Friday, June 26th to Saturday, June 27th at the Radisson Phoenix City Center Hotel in downtown Phoenix.
The event is co-hosted by the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services.

The conference is designed to informing women servicemembers and veterans of the programs and services available to them and to help create a support system designed for the special needs of female veterans.

On Saturday evening, at 7 p.m., June 27th, there will be a special tribute to the women who have fallen in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Please contact Joan Sisco of Veterans First at (602) 841.7663 or Gabe Forsberg of the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services at (602) 234.8431 for more information about this unique and needed event.
