2010 Women Veterans Luncheon

On Saturday, November 6th, the Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project hosted our 13th annual women veterans luncheon.

Our speaker this year was Command Sergeant Major Teresa S. King, the first female commandant of the U.S. Army's Drill Sergeant School at Fort Jackson, SC. CSM King, a North Carolina native,spoke about her life and career and was given a standing ovation.

UNCG Chancellor Linda P. Brady gave remarks. The Chancellor comes from a military family and always makes very insightful comments.

The luncheon is a great chance to catch up with all of the women who have donated their oral histories to the collection and to meet and greet other women veterans.

I'd like to see more photos. As a rule, pictures say a thousand words. It is nice of you to help veterans and all those soldiers who served our country. I like the look and style of your web journal. Hope you will keep up the good work! Best regards,
