In March, the world honors Women's History Month. It has been both a privilege and a gift for me to meet and come to know the women who reside at The Armed Forces Retirement Home, Washington, D.C. For quite a few years, I have learned of their military service to our great nation, of their devotion to their very own families, and to their far reaching communities. During the month of March, you will be introduced to these brave, kind, and compassionate women. Thanks for taking the time to come to know them and to honor them.
