Women Veterans Information

Women represent an irreplaceable, valuable part of the armed forces of the United States. Despite their significant contributions, many former servicewomen have neglected to apply for the benefits they have rightfully earned. Many people, including those women who served their country, mistakenly believe that they are not considered "veterans". 

In the State of Idaho, there are an estimated 10,000 women veterans.
