The Women Veterans’ Network was created in 1997 with the purpose of giving Massachusetts women veterans the resources they need for benefits and services, eligibility, as well as a network of female veterans that can rely on and support each other.
The Network also hosts events like the Conference throughout the year, including the annual Deborah Sampson Award and Appreciation Day, and publishes a biannual newsletter. Get involved with the Network by joining the Sisterhood, the WVN Volunteer Committee, which hosts events and social gatherings that give members a chance to meet and network, or the Speakers Bureau, which connects women veterans with opportunities to speak about their military experiences in their community.
Visit the Women Veterans website to find additional information on the Network, the Conference, resources for women veterans, and ways to get involved in the women veteran community.
