The Army Women’s Foundation’s Legacy Scholarship program recognizes the importance of education and helping recipients to achieve their educational goals. The Legacy Scholarship program offers financial support to Army women and their lineal descendants in four areas including Certificate programs, Community College coursework, Undergraduate Degrees, and Graduate Degrees.

The Foundation is currently announcing our eighth class of Legacy Scholarship Awardees who exemplify the standards and qualities instilled by Army values. The scholarship program has grown from awarding two scholarships during the first year to thirty eight. Without the assistance of our sponsors and partners, the rapid growth of this worthwhile program would not have been possible and we are grateful for your continued support!

Stars and Stripes salutes the women of the U.S. Army and congratulates the U.S. Army Women’s Foundation Hall of Fame honorees. As a news organization Stars and Stripes focuses on telling the story of our service men and women for the military community — and nobody does that as we do. Our decades-long and distinguished history of providing news, information and entertainment to the U.S. military community is one thing that sets us apart.

At Walmart, we are grateful for the sacrifice our nation’s veterans, military men and women, and their families have made in service to our country. It is not only our duty, but our honor to support our men and women in uniform not only when they are on the battlefield, but also when they return home and transition to civilian life. We are committed to helping these men and women as they face this important period through job opportunities, as well as support for programs that provide the job training, transition support and education they may need.

On Memorial Day 2013, Walmart demonstrated its continuing support of veterans with the launch of its Veterans Welcome Home Commitment. Walmart promised to offer a job to any honorably discharged U.S. veteran within his or her first 12 months off active duty. Walmart also projected that it would hire more than 100,000 veterans over five years, and we are well ahead of that, having hired over 77,000 veterans since Memorial Day 2013. Importantly, more than 6,000 of them have been promoted since joining the Walmart team.

In 2011, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation committed $20 million by 2015 to support veterans and their families with assistance from programs that provide job training, transition help and education. With the early completion of the commitment in May of 2014, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation renewed their commitment, announcing an additional $20 million through 2019 to support veteran job training, education, and innovative public/private community-based initiatives that address the challenges many of our veterans face when returning to the civilian workforce and their communities.
