Mounument to Women Veterans Foundation
The Monument to Women Veterans Foundation advocates for female veterans through the establishment of a national monument recognizing the service and sacrifices of all women who have proudly donned a United States armed services uniform. It further seeks to provide resources and services for a myriad of issues currently impacting Women Veterans to include PTSD/MTBI, sexual assault, sexual harassment, unemployment, homelessness and countless others that may arise in the future.
Ultimately, the Monument to Women’s Veterans Foundation will serve as a gateway to specialized services available to female Veterans throughout Florida’s Gulf Coast. Women Veterans are encouraged to visit and enjoy the sense of community with fellow female patriots from across the United States.
The Monument to Women Veterans Foundation was incorporated in 2011 and has been granted 501(c) (3) status by the Internal Revenue Service to pursue the development of a monument that would honor the women who have served their country and provide often unmet critical resources for female Veteran care.
On November 8, 2011, having determined there is a significant and continuing DoD interest in promoting awareness of the issues faced by women veterans and the services that are available to assist them, the United States Department of Defense issued the appointment of LTC Eurdyce S Stanley as Liaison to the Monument to Women Veterans Foundation.
