Special Collections and University Archives


The 16th Annual Women Veterans Luncheon will be held on Saturday, November 9th from 11:30-2 at UNCG‘s Elliott University Center. The featured speaker will be Dr. Laura Browder, the author of the timely book When Janey Comes Marching Home. This collection of first-person accounts from dozens of military women who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan provides a dramatic portrait of women at war. The oral histories give a presence and a voice to American women returning from service in a war zone. Browder will highlight the stories of several women she interviewed for the book, and discuss the current issues surrounding women in combat. The program is open to everyone. Tickets are free for UNCG student veterans reserves or active military, $12 for all other military veterans, and $16 or non-veterans. Table sponsorship opportunities to support student attendance will be available for $300. Contact Beth Ann Koelsch for tickets and questions at 336/334-5838 or
