Local Female Veterans Tell Their Stories
Women fought in the Revolutionary War disguised as men and spent years in many wars behind the battlefield as support and spies. However, in 1918, Loretta Walsh enlisted in the Navy becoming the first officially sanctioned soldier. Fast forward to today and we see a diverse military with women not only in combat but serving as generals. Three local, brave women veterans will tell their stories at The Sedona Women’s (“TSW”) November 9, 2022 program at the Creative Life Center.
Speaker Michele Zahner served 23 years in the US Army’s Intelligence Branch. Michele served in Germany, the Middle East and Africa and was the first female in the US Army attached to Mozambique during the 2000 Operation Atlas Response. She also served in the Gulf War, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Camilla Ross served her country in both the Navy and Army. She served at the Naval Damage Control Training Center during the Gulf War (1990). Camilla will tell her story about her long and distinguished military career. All three veterans will provide answers to questions at the program’s end.
Speaker Jennifer Brehler is a former Intelligence Analyst in the U.S. Army and was the first woman to graduate from the U.S. Army Air Assault School in Germany. She will discuss her experiences serving in Desert Storm.
This program will be held on Wednesday, November 9th, at the Creative Life Center at 333 Schnebly Hill Road in Sedona. A meet-and-greet will begin at 9:30 am, followed by the business meeting, program, and Q and A.
No registration is required and guests are welcome.
There will be an optional lunch after the meeting. The location will be announced at the meeting.
