The Army Historical Foundation is calling for women Soldiers, or loved ones and friends on their behalf, to submit their stories of service to The Army Historical Foundation’s Registry of the American Soldier. The Registry is a searchable online record of photos and Soldier’s stories that will appear in the future National Museum of the United States Army, currently under construction at Fort Belvoir, Va. The Foundation is encouraging women to enter their stories to ensure the Registry reflects the diversity of the 30 million Americans who have served in the U.S. Army.
“The military community rightly commemorates Women’s History Month every March by highlighting the contributions of our women service members, but it’s important that these Soldiers also their time in uniform permanently honored, year-round,” Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody, Foundation board member and the first woman to achieve the rank of four-star general, said. “The Registry of the American Soldier provides a way for all Soldiers to see their stories forever preserved in the nation’s future home for U.S. Army history.”
There is no cost to submit a story. To submit an entry for the Registry, visit armyhistory.org and click “Registries.”
New BTEC appointment system: The Bragg Training and Education Center has set up an appointment system to service all education counseling needs. The new convenient appointment system allows patrons to have a scheduled appointment time to meet with an education counselor.
