U.S. Army Women's Foundation

In 1969, a group of women Soldiers formed our Foundation to preserve and honor their service as members of the Army Women's Corps. Led by Veterans, the US Army Women's Foundation is a non-profit, volunteer organization, dedicated to promoting public interest in the US Army and honoring the service of all women who wear or have worn the US Army uniform.
