Hire women veterans

This Veterans Day Parade honors women in the military. The local Soroptimist International of the American River club is proud to offer its support to this recognition of females in the armed forces, both present and past. Soroptimists work to help women and girls locally and internationally, as well, through a wide variety of awards and projects. Since we chartered our club, we have participated in Operation Mom and collected items for the deployed female troops that received the “care packages.” Soon, many of them will be returning home as the war in Iraq draws to a close. Women veterans have the highest unemployment of all returning military groups. Let’s show these brave women that our support for women in the military goes beyond parades and puts them back into the workforce when they return. Pat Ferguson, Meadow Vista
