I Am A Veteran

A group of women Veterans has come together to create a series of Public Service Announcements entitled, “I Am A Veteran.”  The purpose of their campaign is to advance the conversation about how women are seen, both in Veteran/military circles and by the general public.  All too frequently, they believe, a woman Veteran is initially dismissed as the wife or daughter of the “actual” Veteran, and they’re aiming to help change that societally-ingrained misconception.  The Veterans featured in the PSAs talk about what a Veteran looks like, what it means to be a Veteran, and some of their personal experiences with the general public’s reaction to the discovery of their Veteran status.  These PSAs are currently airing on AFN, and we’ll post them as they become available.
