One of my business colleagues, Ed Rule (President and CEO of Naval Systems, Inc. and retired Supply Corps Officer) shared his March Newsletter with me and I wanted to share it with NNOA. In it, Ed highlights a few of the women role models we have been blessed with in our military.
The elevation of women in our military is clearly the most important change that I can recall in my 34 years of service. It has made our military far more resilient, intelligent and ready. The women highlighted in this newsletter are just a few examples of inspirational leadership in our military.
I hope all of the NNOA members will share their stories this Women’s History Month.
