This comes at a time when the Veterans Health Administration is trying to welcome female vets. In its annual report, the U. Department of Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee on Women Veterans recommended the VA make a of changes, including doing a better job of forecasting the needs of the growing of female vets.
Another recommendation was to rename at least one VA hospital after a female veteran of ificance, in order to encourage female veterans to be more comfortable using VA facilities. In the report, the VA responded that the administration cannot rename a facility without an act of Congress. Karin Brennan was an army sergeant who worked in military intelligence behind the Iron Curtain for three years during the Cold War.
She is chairing the new group, created by Levin to recommend the name of a local veteran. The member group of six women and five men will comb through San Diego history.
The namesake veteran must be deceased. Did they serve with distinction in such a way to put them above other people?
It could be anyone, from year-old Army 1st Lt. Jennifer Moreno, who was killed by a roide bomb in Afghanistan into the first female Marine to arrive at Camp Pendleton. Men and women are no different in that respect. Neither are currently named for a person. Levin would then submit a bill. Another group is also trying to rename the Manhattan VA after a woman veteran. According to the report, the VA supports H. Corbin was a Revolutionary War hero.
She flew missions before being killed during a mission in southern France. We regret the error. Search Query Show Search. Support KPBS. Watch Live.
