Women in the Military Forum

On Tuesday February 11th, Hampton High School AFJROTC held its annual Women in the Military Forum.  This is the third year the forum has been held.   The guest speakers were women from the United States  Army, Navy, and Air Force.  Their career fields ranged from culinary to medicine to law and law enforcement to aircraft maintenance and Public Affairs.
The female cadets of VA-041 had an opportunity to ask the speakers a number of questions ranging from what it was like to be in the military day to day and what they liked the most and least about being deployed overseas.  The speakers also discussed the requirements for serving in the Armed Forces and the benefits.  Many of them shared their own personal stories and what motivated them to want to serve their country.  
The female cadets enjoyed the opportunity to hear the speakers and gained insight into what it is like not only to serve in the Armed Forces but to serve in the Armed Forces as a woman.
