NASHVILLE, Tenn. – U.S. Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) introduced a bipartisan resolution to designate June 12, 2024, as “Women Veterans Appreciation Day,” honoring the invaluable contributions and sacrifices made by women veterans throughout the history of the United States. The resolution recognizes the growing presence of women in the Armed Forces and National Guard and pays respect to women veterans for their patriotic military service. 

“Throughout history, women have bravely assisted and served in our military alongside their brothers in arms. This bipartisan resolution recognizes our female servicemembers' vital contributions to ensure our nation’s freedom. I look forward to the passage of Women Veterans Appreciation Day so we may honor these brave soldiers for years to come,” said Senator Blackburn.

This resolution recognizes and celebrates the bravery and commitment women service members and veterans exhibit every single day.”
