AUSTIN, TX – June 12th is Women Veterans Day, commemorating the day President Harry Truman signed the bill enabling women to serve as permanent, regular members of U.S. Armed Forces, on June 12, 1948.

Prior to the enactment of the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act in 1948, women serving in the military could enlist as volunteers in clerical positions or work as nurses, and in special, temporary units such as Women’s Army Corps full army status during WWII.

Today, women serve in all military occupational specialties, including logistics, munitions, intelligence, and combat.

After service, the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) encourages women veterans to claim the benefits they have earned. These include education benefits, disability compensation, health care and more. Additionally, TVC has a Programa de Mujeres Veteranas to better address the needs, issues and topics specific to women who served. It also has a Women Veterans Network which meets monthly and covers topics from finances to trauma, plus provides the opportunity to share stories.

Texas has the highest women veteran population in the nation with over 190,000 women veterans.
