This Week at American Veteran

The spring issue of American Veteran magazine has shipped. It is currently available online, and it should hit mailboxes by the end of the week.

Please take a look and let us know what you think.

This week at American Veteran Online, we will follow AMVETS Legislative Director Ray Kelley to Capitol Hill for testimony before the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs on a host of pending bills.

This morning, American Veteran also accompanied Kelley and John Schupp, director of Cleveland State's SERV program, to CNN's Washington Bureau to discuss veterans' education. Check back with American Veteran Online to see when the CNN segment will air.

American Veteran will continue our Women in Service series this week with the long-awaited Brig. Gen. Vaught piece. A major thank you goes out to the staff at the National Women's Memorial for providing us with a wealth of information on Gen. Vaught's military career and her work with WIMSA.

We will also launch a new segment this week called Battle Stripes, which will highlight some of the most historic military units and chronicle their combat experiences. If you have any suggestions of features down the road for either our Women in Service or Battle Stripes series, please let us know.
