In honor of Women’s History Month, VA’s Center for Women Veterans partnered with Veteran Artist Program (VAP) to display art by 10 women Veterans at 10 VA medical centers nationwide with support from Veterans Canteen Service and First Data. Many sites are hosting events to coincide with the exhibit, which we are listing on our page dedicated to this initiative, along with associated blogs and coverage.

In addition, the VAP webpage dedicated to this initiative features videos of the artists talking about their service and art.

We received over 400 submissions when the call went out, and were so impressed with the quality of the work that we also selected ten Honorable Mentions, which are also featured on the VAP webpage:

Please join me in congratulating and celebrating these wonderful women Veteran artists, and check out their work on the site today!

    I was told since my overall rating didn’t change they didn’t have to give me a reason for the decrease in one of my claim. Is that true
