What did they Issue you???
Every branch of service, every generation of service issues unique equipment to women veterans and enforced (or did not) special “hygiene” regulations. Even in times of combat women veteran have been issued supplies that had nothing to do with the mission. What experiences did you have? What things were you issued? What regulations did you have that are different than today?
This is important information for us to document as time changes. especially as women gain more visibility in combat roles in our military. Members have shared stories, brought in artifacts, and I personally experienced things in my service. These are very important for all generations.
Athena’s Sisters wants to hear your unique service story! Every story is important to us, and there is no wrong to tell it. You can write as much or as little as you are comfortable with, and it is your choice to share your name, rank, and branch of service publication. This is your chance to be in our Veteran Women’s Anthology that will be published on our 5 year anniversary.
