The stories and statistics are victorious and heart-wrenching at the same time. Women veterans serve beside male soldiers yet experience many unique issues when they return home: higher rates of divorce, homelessness, loss of child custody and unemployment.

Alicia is featured on Oprah today; a homeless woman veteran who served for ten years, including in Iraq and Afghanistan. She was working at the Pentagon on 9-11 and lost many comrades.

We need to support these soldiers and work together to create solutions. Joining Forces for Women Veterans is an event created to do just this. Learn more at on the Womens Veterans Summit website.
