The National Association of

Black Military Women 
(formerly known as Black WAAC, WAC, Women in Service)



Colonel Stephanie Dawson,
 Retired, US Army National Guard
I am proud to greet you as the president of the National Association of Black Military Women (NABMW) for  2013-2014, and to welcome you to this site and our organization.
NABMW has a long history of educating Sister Soldiers in our rich legacy of commitment, accomplishment, and perseverance in the military ranks.  We provide role models for active, reserve, and junior Soldiers, as well as community awareness. Our main focus is on making sure that our contributions are known and celebrated. Ours is a vibrant and colorful story that definitely should be told  "and tell it we will".   We pay tribute to all contributions and legacies  but we give special tribute to our World War II and Korean vets.
History or in this case "Herstory" is told from the perspective of the writer, so we must all ensure that we tell our story and detail our individual experiences.  We owe it to future generations to make sure that our contributions are noted, told, and retold so that those who come after us have a picture of what success looks like and can see how they can be even more engaging, and family, community and globally focused as they march in a determined manner toward success.
Peruse this site to learn more about us and how you you can play a part in achieving that vision.
Please join me, the new NABMW executive team, our foundation, our chapters and regions, members, friends, associates and sponsors in moving this agenda forward, one step at a time, one story at a time, one success at a time.
Thank you.
Stephanie Dawson
National President
