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.Honor the Service and Sacrifice of Army Women - Donate Now
