Celebrating 100th Anniversary of Women in Service

American Flag and Service Medal

To All Veterans & Friends of Veterans,

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of military women veterans, the Connecticut Veterans Service Organizations are planning to host an awards ceremony, celebrating and honoring all World War II women Veterans.

The Connecticut Veterans Service Organizations are asking for support in locating and identifying those women who served as part of the United States military during WWII. The attached flyer provides information on this upcoming event. Please share this information and the flyer with your network, friends, and family as well as your social media contacts. Also attached is a very important application for the Connecticut Veterans Wartime Service Medal and/or Connecticut Service members and Veterans Registry Application. If possible, help her complete the applications with any supporting documentation and return this form to the Connecticut Department of Veterans’ Affairs at the address on the instructions page.

These WWII veterans are all in their 90’s and it is imperative that we be aggressive at identifying our women veterans by April 22, 2018 application deadline. The date, time and place for the impending ceremony will be announced later. 

Please help us honor our Connecticut Women Veterans during this 100th anniversary year. Your support is greatly appreciated. Any questions, please feel free to call Jamie DePaola at 860-985-2064 or Sal Sena, Sr. at 860-614-6188.
