Spotlight: Women Veterans
The Sunshine State is home to the third largest population of women veterans in the nation, with more than 154,000. Women veterans are one of the fastest growing segments of the veterans’ population. Of the approximately 21.3 million living veterans nationwide, more than 2 million are women.
Many women veterans don’t know that they are eligible for the full range of federal and state benefits, to include special programs for them. Here are some resources for women veterans.
