Introducing Arkansas Association for Women Veterans ~ New nonprofit to tackle women veterans' issues 

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Many women in Arkansas have worn the uniform of the military and served our country; we owe them a debt of thanks. We also owe it to them to recognize and help with issues that are unique to them, as women who have served in the military. The Arkansas Association for Women Veterans (AAWV) has organized to do just that.

The new nonprofit is reaching out to all women veterans around the state of Arkansas; if you're a woman and you've worn a military uniform for any period of time, you're a veteran. The association is dedicated to assisting you and educating the public on who women veterans are and what their needs are.

Throughout the history of the United States and Arkansas, women have served and supported the military in numerous ways. As have their families, friends and communities, who comprise their support network.
While women veterans have many issues in common with their brothers who have served, there are many issues that are unique to them, because they are women.  The AAWV was formed because of this. The association is dedicated to providing a forum for our women veterans, information and networking opportunities and to act as an advocate for women veterans in educating our communities to their issues and needs.   

AAWV also appreciates that "it takes a village" to help our women veterans succeed, so membership is open to women veterans, their spouses, family and support network members. Membership is free.

AAWV has just recently launched its Internet site at www.arkansasawv.org, with information, news and resources, along with an easy-to-complete membership form. The AAWV Facebook page is also now available, which provides a ready forum for networking and feedback. Just go to http://www.facebook.com/ and type in "AAWV" in search.

Just wanted to make you aware of a resource for veterans experiencing symptoms of PTSD. www.StressProject.org is a national study for the use of EFT for PTSD symptoms. EFT is a very simple and effective technique for clearing the cause of symptoms. I am a member of the study, and six free sessions are available to those in need. Check out the website, and e-mail me if interested.

A new opportunity for women veterans and this is non profit one. This is high quality essay writing service. I enjoyed reading this short but informative content. But http://www.rushanessay.com/ will help more in writing in future.

It’s a great initiative to help the women veterans by tackling their issues by the formation of such an association solely for the same purpose. It will make things better for the women veterans who have a tough time getting their necessities fixed. https://ccchclinic.com/complete-care-community-health-center/
