The Tri-County Women Veterans meet the third Monday every month at Palmer Legends Country Club. I spoke about my books Unsung Hero and Dandelion Child: A Soldier’s Daughter, and about my desire to help each of these veteran heroes get their stories known. Sixteen percent of today’s military force is female–the largest contingent in our history. Every service is recruiting more female high school and college graduates. Let’s support our women warriors. Sue Roper said, “The Tri-County Women Veterans, as a group, coordinates only a couple of activities a year. (i.e. visit the Athena House in Tampa, participate in parades, etc.) Instead, we like to help other organizations by providing woman-power to make their events successful (i.e. Honor Flight, Operation Shoebox, Villagers For Veterans, Veterans Memorial Park, DAV, etc.) Hats off to these remarkable women.
