June 12

Women Veterans Day

During the 85th Texas Legislature Session, State Representative Victoria Neave authored legislation to designate June 12th as Women Veterans Day in Texas. Her legislation was incorporated into Senate Bill 805, authored by Senator Eddie Lucio Jr., and was signed into law by Governor Abbott on June 9, 2017. Senate Bill 805 established June 12th as Women Veterans Day. It was on that day in 1948 when President Harry S. Truman signed into law the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act, enabling women to serve as permanent, regular members of the armed forces.

Women Veterans Stories

  • “The moral of my story is NEVER GIVE UP!  Find a TVC representative who is sensitive to your needs, is willing to fight for you, and advises you on what you need to secure your claim, and don’t be afraid to involve political muscle if you aren’t getting anywhere with your claim”.–Cheryl Van Syckle - U.S. Army Veteran
