MESSAGE FROM THE NABMW PRESIDENT

 Retired, US Army 
 Email:  KHNABMW@AOL.COM
 

Greetings Sister Soldiers, Friends and Families

Thank you for visiting our site. The National Association of Black Military Women(formerly known as the "Black WAAC, WAC, Women in Sevice" is an organization of dynamic women veterans from every branch of Service in the US Armed Forces and reside throughout the United States and over seas.

Our mission is simple and clear:

"To seek out, record, maintain and tell the historyof every Black Military Women. We call it "HERSTORY".

We also honor those soldiers and advocates who have paved the way for us to serve and give tribute to those soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice for us to continue to live under the freedom that so many people in the world dream of. Maybe you don't realize it that we are "not" in the history books, or in the movie scenes, or even talked about much. We only want to let everyone know that we too have served and have a story to tell.  The NABMW is slowing changing that.  You see more information now on the role of military women especially Black Military Women due to our efforts since 1976.  And we are very proud to say so.  But we still have a long way to go.
