In commemoration of Veterans Day, the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons is set to host a program, called the “The Changing Role of Women in the Military: Viet Nam to Gulf War and Beyond.”
The free event will be held on Tuesday, at 7:00 p.m. at the Hampton Bays Public Library, 52 Ponquogue Avenue. Refreshments will be served, starting at 6:45 p.m.
Speakers will include LWV Board member and Southampton resident Susan Wilson, who will give a brief history of the role of women in the military and share some of her experiences as a non-deployed Navy veteran of the Viet Nam War. Also speaking will be Susan Soto, the newly-appointed Commander of VFW Post 7009 in Southampton, who will talk about her experiences as a deployed veteran of the Gulf War.
