Women Veterans Luncheon

June 12 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm PDT

The Lincoln County Veterans Resource Center is hosting its first women veterans luncheon at 11 a.m. Wednesday, June 12 at the Agate Beach Best Western in Newport.

The luncheon will include speakers recognizing the unique challenges of women’s military service.

June 12 has been celebrated as Women’s Veterans Day in Oregon since 2019 and commemorates President Harry Truman’s signature on the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act, which allowed women to actively serve in the U. S. Military.

Lincoln County has 475 identified women seeking service from its veterans office. Women make up 10-15 percent of active military, but only approximately three percent seek benefits from the many Veterans Affairs programs, the county said in announcing the luncheon.

The county’s Veterans Resource Center invites women who served to RSVP for the luncheon by calling the office at 541-265-0570.
