Oregon Marks First Women Veterans Day June 12
For the first time in Oregon history, Gov. Kate Brown has declared a state observance recognizing women veterans. Women Veterans Day will take place on June 12.
That date also marks the 71st anniversary of the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act, which acknowledged the great contributions made by women in the military and finally enabled them to serve as regular members of the United States Armed Forces and Reserves.
Coinciding with Women Veterans Day, the "I Am Not Invisible" exhibit featuring portraits of Oregon women veterans will be on display at the capitol June 14-17.
