There is an increasing need for comprehensive care for women through the VA system that comes with the reproductive system and organs due to the increased number of women joining the military.

I always ask myself this question and as Maya Angelou once said, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel” and that is absolutely true.
