Wisconsin’s 37th Annual All Services Women Veterans Luncheon Saturday, October 20, 2018

All women who have ever donned a military uniform and those currently serving are welcome at this not-to-be-missed event!!

This year’s theme is “Women at War,” based on the soon-to-be-released CD by Warrior Songs, Inc. Two musicians featured on the CD will explain the project and give us an exclusive performance! While the official CD release date is November 10, if production is complete we will have copies at no cost for all in attendance.

Our keynote speaker is Tegan Griffith, a Marine who served in Iraq and is now a Public Affairs Specialist with the US Forest Service in Northern Wisconsin.

An archivist from the Wisconsin Veterans Museum– also a woman veteran - will provide information on recording YOUR military story – war time or otherwise. Every story is important!

Representatives from the Madison Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Disabled American Veterans will also join us, with information on their women’s programs and recent reports.
