Women Veterans of West Texas is a community network for all women veterans including prior service, active duty, guards, reserve, and retired to help encourage, empower and uplift each other, share knowledge, provide resource information, mentorship and career opportunities. It is our hope for all women that have served our country to discover & achieve their greatest potential. We also strive to create awareness, recognition and acceptance of women as veterans and encourage all prior military service women to identify as a veteran.
Check out this video of Women Veterans pledging to identify as a veteran during the Women Veterans Roll Call in Lubbock, Texas in 2016: https://www.facebook.com/texasveteranscommission/videos/1115916898449969/
No matter where, when or how long you served, you are a veteran once you have taken the oath of enlistment and served one day.
Whether you just want someone to connect with, want an opportunity to volunteer, need assistance connecting to resources and benefits, or help with other needs, please let us know.
There are women veteran groups in various locations throughout West Texas to participate with. In Abilene, we meet at 6:00 pm the first Monday of each month (unless it's a holiday) at the Military Veteran Peer Network Center, 765 Orange St., Abilene TX.
