This week at American Veteran, we will continue our Women in Service series beyond National Women's History Month. This important story must continue to be told, as a new generation of female war fighters distinguish themselves on the battlefield.
We also hope to launch a new feature in the coming weeks called "Keeping Posted Online." This will be very similar to the quarterly section, featuring highlights from AMVETS posts and departments across the country. We are often restricted to only a handful of stories each time the magazine goes to print, and we know this doesn't even scratch the surface on the contributions our organization makes nationwide. We are eager for you to send us content as your events happen.
Next, AMVETS Legislative Department is working close with Texas Rep. Ruben Hinojosa to fund student-veterans "centers of excellence" on college campuses nationwide.
Finally, AMVETS continues to work on this summer's Post-9/11 veterans symposium as part of the 65th annual AMVETS National Convention in New Orleans. Check back with the AMVETS National Web site and American Veteran Online throughout the week for developments.
