NATIONAL VET GIRLS ROCK DAY

On February 19, National Vet Girls ROCK Day recognizes the immense dedication of the nearly 2 million U.S. veteran women.

On National Vet Girls ROCK Day, not only is it a day to recognize women veterans, but it's a day for women veterans to support one another and to share resources, build relationships and spread awareness concerning the needs of women veterans

Since the Revolutionary War, women have served in the armed forces and many have not been recognized for their service. Today, the contributions of nearly 2 million women veterans deserve acknowledgment. National Vet Girls ROCK Day celebrates the bonds they formed and their experiences through military service.

Like thousands of military personnel, support transitioning from military to civilian life develops both their professional and personal success. Honoring their accomplishments, skills, and essential contributions both in the military and civilian fields  elevates the place of the woman veteran to her proper position.

From the world wars of Europe to the jungles of the Far East, from the deserts of the Middle East to the African continent, and even here in our own hemisphere, our “women” veterans have made the world a better place and America the great country we are today. ~ John Hoeven

While we can never truly repay the debt we owe our heroes, the least we should do for our brave veterans is to ensure that the government takes a proactive approach to deliver the services and benefits they have earned, so they can access the care they need and so richly deserve.  ~Kirsten Gillibrand

The willingness of America's [Women] veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.  ~Jeff Miller

HISTORY

Vet Girls ROCK, an initiative under Active Veterans With Answers,  founded in 2017, Vet Girls ROCK serves as a resource and knowledge stream for women veterans.  With the struggles of transitioning from military to civilian life; Vet Girls ROCK was created to educate, enlighten, and support women veterans through professional and personal growth that improves awareness, potential, and identify talents.  Women veterans who miss that camaraderie can find it in Vet Girls ROCK.
