On Wednesday, May 25th I attended the 2016 Women Veterans Summit & Expo at the McKimmon Center on the campus of North Carolina State University. The N.C. Department of Military & Veterans Affairs and the NC Veterans Business Association, working with the Department of Veterans Affairs, and numerous other partners conducted this special event designed to empower, educate and enrich the lives of North Carolina’s women veterans.
During the event, I was awarded the “Solid Support for Veterans” award for my legislative endeavors that have positively affected women veterans. I have always believed that our veterans deserve to be well recognized and honored for their contributions and endless sacrifices they have made through their service to our country. It was pleasure to have met numerous women veterans at the Summit, and I look forward to continuing my support for all veterans in the future.
More than 350 veterans and veteran supporters attended this event.
