Women's History Month Celebration Featured
Service to the Flag Award Presentation
In celebration of Women's History Month in March, Women In Defense National recognized the brave women who serve our country through the military, government, and industry. "We have to pause to reflect on our history. If we don't write it down or we don't celebrate it, then it is like it has not happened," said WID National President Tricia Ward. Tricia is pictured opening the program in a slide show of the March 10 event. Click here to view.
The March 10 event took place at the Women in Military Service to America Memorial at Arlington Cemetery (pictured below). As part of its efforts to honor women in defense, WID presented its Service to the Flag Award to one of these distinguished women, the Honorable Carolyn H. Becraft. In accordance with the WID mission to cultivate and support the advancement and recognition of women in all aspects of national security, the award recognizes high-achieving members in national security.
