Women veterans honored at Open House at Robley Rex VA Medical Center
The event was held Saturday at the center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It was a morning to say thank you and share military experiences at the seventh annual Women Veterans Open House at the Robley Rex VA Medical Center.
The event was held Saturday at the center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It gives the women the chance to learn about VA's services and others community resources.
Veterans from recent wars all the way to World War II were in attendance. There was plenty of music, education, food, and countless stories.
Women Veterans Program Manger Lauren Pachi says the open house was designed to give women veterans the opportunity "to get together with other women who served, who understand maybe some of the difficulties and the positives that they had from their service. It's really important for that sense of sisterhood. And also just making sure that we honor them."
Women veterans make up only 10 percent of the veteran population.
