On November 9, 2013 over 100 women veterans, student veterans, family, friends, and community members attended the Annual Women Veterans Luncheon.  Dr. Laura Browder, author of the book When Janey Comes Marching Home spoke about the oral histories she conducted with women who had served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Photos from the luncheon can be seen here:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/uncgspecial/sets/72157637881438765/.

On Veterans Day, members of the UNCG community marked the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War with a remembrance event and a roll call of North Carolinians who died in the conflict.  The keynote speaker was WVHP veteran Ann Fisher, who served in the Women’s Army Corps from 1949-1976.
