Dedication to our nation was on display at a recent event held to support women veterans of the United States Armed Services. A very impressive group of women who have served our country came together at the gathering and celebration, hosted by American River Brewing Company.

The Women Veterans Alliance, created to support female veterans who have specific needs separate from male veterans, has as their mission is to impact and empower the lives of women veterans. They are the only group focused on directly impacting the quality of life of women veterans.

Attending the event on Friday, June 2nd to recognize the honorees were Congressman Ami Bera and Assemblyman Ken Cooley. Dave Mathis, co-owner of American River Brewing Company has become a big supporter of the group.

During the presentations, each of the veterans took to the microphone and announced their branch of the military and their term of service. It was truly impressive to hear each of their individual commitments, with some still engaged.

American River Bank was the major sponsor for this event. Be sure to tell them “Thank You” when you visit one of their local branches. Food was provided by Culinerdy Cruzer.
