Week of Recognition
Dear Community Partners,
Women Veterans Recognition Week will be celebrated June 4-10, 2023. The week of events will not only celebrate the accomplishments of women veterans, but also bring awareness to the unique needs and challenges they face in transitioning into civilian life. We invite you to support these events, participate in the activities and share this information with your colleagues to show your support of women veterans.
This year, all events will focus on mental wellness and self-care. We recognize the increase of suicide among our veterans, especially women, and want to ensure they have a platform to discuss, learn and be encouraged. Women tend to take care of others before self. We will be helping them learn how to take a break and help self.
A tentative schedule of events will be posted soon. We believe everyone will walk away knowing they can excel beyond their own expectations.
Culminating the week of events, we will host our gala to honor our WWII – Vietnam era women veterans. We call them our “trailblazers” and we recognize their sacrifices. In addition, we will recognize women veterans who are making a difference in her community. Our theme for the gala is “Continuing the Legacy”.
We encourage you to purchase your tickets early and sponsor a Trailblazer. We will also have sponsor opportunities. We will post this soon as well. By being a sponsor, you show your support for our mission and will help us sustain this vibrant initiative. Sponsorship also shows your support for our veterans and provide you the opportunity to “give back” to the community. Social distancing and mask will be required at all events. The Northeast Florida Women Veterans, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization and all contributions are tax deductible. Thank you in advance for your support.
