A Tribute to Women in the Military Painting
On Saturday June 13th the St. Charles County Veterans Museum unveiled our new Tribute to Women in the Military. The original painting is by local award-winning artist Linda Wilmes and depicts women serving from the Revolutionary War to modern era women in combat roles. Our guest speaker was Betty Gonzales USMC veteran and first woman Commander of the Department of Missouri for the American Legion.. Betty talked about how people do not recognize women veteran contributions and implored them to share their stories .
O’Fallon TV prepared this YouTube video on the occasion.
