THE NATIONAL LEAGUE OF FEMALE VETERANS. INC in Orlando, Florida was initially created to act as an advocate for female veterans and their families who are facing issues. Although we provide assistance to all veterans, there are almost two-million female veterans.


Traditional services for veterans do not always fit the needs of female veterans and those closest to them. This is due to  women veterans  sometimes the family’s sole caregivers. Services and benefits that are designed to promote independent living for combat-injured veterans will need to consider the special  

needs of the female veteran.

About Our Company

Their is  the issue of military sexual trauma (MST). Military Sexual Trauma is the term used by VA to refer to experiences of sexual assault or repeated threatening sexual harassment, which a veteran experienced during his or her military service. The definition used by VA comes from the Federal law (Title 38 U.S. Code 1720D) and is psychological trauma. Sexual harassment is further defined as repeated, unsolicited verbal or physical contact of a sexual nature that is threatening in character.


According to the national data from the Department of Veteran Affairs, about one in five women and one in 100 men responded “yes,” that they experienced MST when screened by their VA health-care provider. Although rates of MST are higher among women because there are more men than women in the military, there are actually significant numbers of women and men seen in VA who have experienced MST.


These rates are certainly an underestimate of the actual rate of MST, given that general sexual trauma is frequently under-reported. Finally, there is the issue of unemployment or underemployment of the female veteran population. Women currently comprise 15% of active military personnel, 17% of National Guard and Reserve forces, and 20% of new military recruits.


Many will return to rural areas to support their families and seek employment. Women veterans seeking employment in nonmetropolitan areas often face challenges that differ from their urban counterparts, such as geographical barriers, limited available positions, and a lack of childcare resources within their communities.


These challenges may be further exacerbated by a complex set of issues, including untreated physical and psychological disorders—such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) resulting from combat, military sexual trauma (MST), or other traumas associated with military service.


These Issues can often delay the transition process of complex issues. These must be addressed by transition programs that provide both practical and psychological support. In light of the aforementioned issues, In light of aforementioned, THE NATIONAL LEAGUE OF FEMALE VETERANS. INC adopts the following mission and vision statements:
