Scott's View: Women’s History Month Highlights Leader in Benefits for Female Veterans

Scott's View

With the start of Women’s History Month, we are recognizing female veterans who have made a difference. This week, we honor Linda Schwartz, a friend with a long and distinguished history of serving veterans at the state and federal level. 

The daughter of a World War II veteran, Linda served for more than a decade as Connecticut’s Commissioner of Veterans Affairs, the first woman to hold that position. She went on to become an Asst. Secretary at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Over her long career, she has worked tirelessly and made major contributions to a wide range of veterans issues, including  advancing the cause of disabled veterans.

Also, this weekend, let's all remember our World War II veterans and the 80th birthday of the legendary Navy Seabees. The word "Seabee" comes from "CB," the abbreviation of "Construction Battalion," and we recognize their "can do'' attitude. It’s an inspiration to us all!

A history of Arlington National Cemetery Military & Veterans Life Cover Story: History of Arlington National Cemetery Perfectly aligned white marble tombstones dot green hills like pearls, strung together by memories of fallen military members. That’s the sight at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, DC, which is the resting place for more than 400,000 veterans and their dependents over approximately 640 acres on the Potomac River. This Memorial Day we remember the fallen soldiers buried at Arlington and across the nation. And this Saturday Arlington hosts the inaugural Flowers of Remembrance Day, where the public can bring flowers to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to pay tribute to the sacrifice of so many veterans.
