As a Woman Veteran... I got tired of ALWAYS having to explain that I was THE Veteran. NOT my husband. NOT my father. Most of my sisters in arms will agree with me in this frustration. I wanted to be called something that defined ME as a Veteran and a woman without having to say "Woman Veteran" and this idea surfaced.
As a fluent Spanish speaker I translated Woman Veteran to one word, which is VETERANA. I want to change the narrative of how WE women are viewed in the public eye after we have served. I want to proudly say ”I'm a Veterana” and everyone know what that means, without having to specify my gender. So I ask that you please join the movement and support us VETERANAS.
