Seal of the State of Nevada

WHEREAS, March is Women’s History Month and well over 200,000 women are currently serving on active duty in the U.S. military; and

WHEREAS, there are over two million Women who have served our Country and this number is rapidly growing; and

WHEREAS, in Nevada, we have approximately 24,000 Women Veterans and about one thousand serving in our State; and

WHEREAS, the contributions of women in uniform are often overlooked, even by the women themselves and statistics show that some of our Women Veterans do not identify themselves as Veterans; and

WHEREAS, these dedicated Women can be found nationwide, and go largely unrecognized in our communities; and

WHEREAS, women from across the United States have contributed to the great achievements and prosperity of our country and these examples of leadership, courage, and determination should be honored and recognized;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, STEVE SISOLAK, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, do hereby proclaim March 17 – 23, 2019, as

Women's Military History Week in Nevada
