Second Year WVA Chapter 48 Goals
We have had a great beginning and we are proud of what this Chapter has accomplished in the first year. But it is not enough. We may not be able to change the world but we can change this part of it. We are determined to see our community Women Veterans receive the respect, honor and care they deserve. We must continue to grow, to reach out, to establish ourselves and to be there in Sisterhood Collaboration for our Women Veterans.
