Honor – Outstanding Combat Female Veterans of NC

To honor Outstanding Combat Female Veterans of North Carolina.  We are soliciting nominations statewide to identify female Veterans who honorably served their country during war time and/or in combat zones and have since made demonstrable, positive impacts within their North Carolina communities. We are specifically interested in identifying women warriors who have dedicated themselves, post-war, to enhancing the well-being of fellow NC Veterans!

The criteria for this inaugural award includes a combination of the following:

  • Candidate must have served in the United States Armed Forces in some capacity during a period of war (required)
  • Candidate must personify integrity, high character, and selflessness
  • Candidate may have overcome barriers in her quest to achieve her goals post-war
  • Candidate has made a positive impact in her local North Carolina community since her return to civilian life
  • Candidate’s personal achievements are demonstrative of CFVF United’s ultimate goal – to help ensure each Combat Female Veteran has the opportunity to prosper in her life after war

Congratulations to the 2024 Outstanding Combat Female Veterans of North Carolina
