Today has been declared Women Veterans Recognition Day in Michigan by Governor Gretchen Whitmer. In a news release, the governor says Michigan has almost 44-thousand living women veterans, and they’re being honored today, along with the women who served before them.
The Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency is launching a three-year initiative called She Is a Veteran to help these women tell their stories and get the benefits and services they need.
Erika Hoover of She Is a Veteran served in the Navy. She talked about the program with WKAR’s Scott Pohl.
