Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project's 20th Anniversary Luncheon Celebrates Women Veterans

On Friday, November 3, more than 120 guests gathered at the Alumni House at UNCG. The attendees were primarily women veterans whose service ranged from the WWII era up to current UNCG students. Thanks to the generous sponsorship by UNCG Nursing alumna and Air Force Nursing veteran Glenda Schillinger the luncheon was free for all attendees.

The luncheon featured an exhibit of uniforms and artifacts from the collections, music from UNCG student musicians, remarks from Jacqelean Gilliam and Martin Halbert as well as an excerpt from the theater production of Star Spangled Girls. The main program was a discussion among the women veterans who shared their experiences and insights about their service and the Women Veterans Historical Project.
