Give a high-five or a hug to a female veteran today.
It is National Vet Girls RISE Day to honor the women who put their lives on the line to protect our country.
There are nearly 2 million female veterans in the United States.
Today is not only a day to recognize women veterans but also a day for those veterans to support one another and spread awareness concerning the needs of women veterans.
Vet Girls RISE founded National Vet Girls RISE Day last year to bring awareness to the contributions of women veterans and to celebrate the bonds they formed in the service.
This group is an initiative under Active Veterans With Answers, founded in 2017. Vet Girls RISE serves as a resource and knowledge stream for women veterans.
