The Register February 2021 Newsletter

Since Jan. 1, more than 1,200 women have registered their service for free! Our goal this year is to register the service of 100,000 women, and we need your help to reach the women whose stories will be lost to history if not recorded and preserved for generations to come at our Memorial. Do you have a family member or friend who is a woman veteran? She deserves to take her rightful place in history. Without her story, our nation’s history is incomplete.

Black History Month

This month, we take the time to honor the culture, sacrifices and invaluable contributions of Black servicewomen. These Sisters in Arms have overcome insurmountable odds of both gender bias and systemic racism to serve in defense of our nation. Let’s continue to celebrate these women all year round! Learn more about their individual experiences in our Register.
