The American Legion is extending the deadline for its military women veterans survey to Sept.18.
The survey was created in order to make specific recommendations for congressional appropriations, Veterans Affairs programs and facilities, and increase the public awareness of issues facing women veterans. While the participation has been overwhelming with more than 1,900 women veterans from all over the country contributing, The American Legion would like to extend the survey deadline to allow more women veterans’ voices to be heard.
All information from the survey is kept private and submitted anonymously. Women veterans can access the survey here.
The American Legion is the largest wartime veterans service organization with 2.2 million members in nearly 14,000 posts in communities across in America. The Legion, established by an act of Congress in 1919, was instrumental in getting the original GI Bill through Congress and the creation of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
