Women Veterans: Chair

From the Chairman

Deb Wheeler
Women Veterans Chair

August 2021

A Great Convention

What a wonderful convention! I was extremely moved by the number of District Commanders that approached me regarding Women Veterans and the large number of Women Veterans who approached me was wonderful jumping on board to offer assistance and ideas.
A goal I have will be to host a Women Veteran Summit on a weekend. I need to check the weekends that are available with the least amount of District, Department events scheduled. This event will be held and sponsored by the Dunedin Memorial Post 275 in Dunedin FL.
Another goal I have is starting a Facebook page for the Women Veterans of the Department of Florida. The goal is to have a web address by the next Legion Link.

Lastly, I plan on developing a brochure or a poster for Women Veterans of the Department of Florida. Lots to do, but I would be remiss if I didn’t thank the staff at the Department and the many female veterans within the State of Florida! This is not only for awareness but potential new Legionnaires!

I thank everyone for this great opportunity, most of us have never had.
