Continuing the Mission to Serve

This year we proudly celebrate 50 years of the Army Women's Foundation. In 1969, a group of women soldiers formed the Foundation to remember and honor their service as members of the Women's Army Corps. Led by veterans, the Army Women’s Foundation is the only nonprofit, volunteer organization dedicated solely to honoring women who wear or have worn the US Army uniform.
