This week at American Veteran, we will continue our online series highlighting historic women's service in the U.S. military. Our next installment will feature Army Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester, the first woman to earn the Silver Star since WWII.
We will also continue to cover the VA budget process for FY2010, as the Obama Administration looks for new ways to provide adequate funding for our veterans.
The AMVETS Legislative Department continues to push for student-veterans' "centers of excellence" with our leaders in Congress. We will keep you up to date on progress throughout the week.
Check back regularly with American Veteran Online for more news and info from around the veterans' community.
