Veteran women wanted for survey
Submitted By Sergio Reyes
Senate Majority Leader Ellen M. Corbett (D-East Bay) invites all women veterans in the Bay Area and throughout California to participate in the important biennial 2013 Women Veterans Survey.
The 2013 Women Veterans Survey is an extensive statewide effort that will allow the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) to improve services for women veterans and their families. The California Research Bureau, in collaboration with the CalVet and the California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls, has conducted this comprehensive survey since 2009.
To ensure that the results accurately reflect the California women veteran population, Senator Corbett encourages women veterans of all eras, backgrounds and experiences to participate before the survey concludes in mid to late December.
ÒWith over 185,000 women in California that have bravely served our country, it is critical that we reach as many women veterans as possible in the next few weeks so that they may participate in this important survey that will help assemble necessary data to assist current and future women veterans,Ó said Senator Corbett. ÒOver 10% of CaliforniaÕs 1.8 million veterans are women, so we must ensure that this information is compiled in timely fashion so that we may enhance services for women veterans and their families.Ó
