Happy Veterans Day!


Veterans Day is an American holiday honoring military veterans. With the increasing number of women serving in the military today and returning from deployments as seasoned veterans, there is a need to identify and treat the obstacles that are unique to female veterans such as pregnancy, breast cancer and other medical concerns. Today New Jersey Assembly Woman Nellie Pou is doing her part to continue honoring veterans by announcing that in the next coming months she plans to team up with the National Foundation for Women Legislators and the Center for Women Veterans at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to recognize and create new strategies to meet the everyday challenges that women veterans face.

At The Maurer Foundation we commend the work Nellie is promising to take on and hope that many other politicians follow her lead.
