Times are changing. More than ever before in modern history, women are afforded the opportunity to serve in combat roles, both in the military and law enforcement. These chances are causing much controversy and get plenty of attention.

However, what organizations exist to actually help and support women risking their lives on the front lines? What resources exist to help these women succeed in their professions and have an impact on the world? What services are available to educate young or aspiring “Woman Warriors” to inspire them and guide them?

Our mission here at “Woman Warrior” is to fulfill these desperately needed roles. Our organization is led by woman combat veterans and is open to all women serving in combat roles or those who aspire to do so. We also welcome fellow woman veterans to help mentor the younger generation.

If women are to succeed in combat, it is not enough to just pass legislation granting us entry into combat roles. We must actually contribute something. We must prove that our existence is not a political agenda or publicity stunt. We must prove that we are truly helping to win the fight and keep our communities safe. To do that we must unite and work together. Now we have a place to do that.
