WREI Joins I Am A U.S. Veteran: Military Women Project
WREI is pleased to announce a partnership with the I am a U. S. Veteran: Military Women [WWII – Present] Project.
Photographer and author, Therese A. Hughes, is producing the exhibit and book to honor our nation's female Veterans, to increase public awareness and dialogue of military women and their roles in the nation’s defense through an artist’s lens. This project supports the long-standing and continued efforts of WREI to provide accurate information about women serving in defense of our nation.
I am a U. S. Veteran: Military Women [WWII – Present] Project is a photo-journal book series and a photography exhibit scheduled to open at the Women’s Memorial in 2014. The Project is vetted through and supported by the U. S. Department of Defense, each of the military branches and the Women in Military Service to America (WIMSA) Foundation and LeadStar, Inc. At this time, Ms. Hughes has interviewed 735 of 1,200 women who have served in defense of our nation.
