Chapter meeting June 2011.

women veteran statue
Past Chapter Regent Carla Geno attended the dedication ceremony of the statue honoring women veterans in June 2011. The statue was dedicated to honor all women veterans. It  depicts two women: Molly Pitcher, the woman who fought beside her husband during the Revolutionary War, and Major Tammy Duckworth, an Army helicopter pilot whose aircraft was struck by enemy fire, resulting in the loss of her legs.  The statue is located on the grounds of the Brehm Memorial Library in Mt. Vernon, Illinois, where the Illinois DAR houses its extensive genealogy library.
