Pennycuick: Women Veterans Sought for June 10 PA Capitol Ceremony Celebrating Their Service

HARRISBURG – U.S. Army combat veteran Sen. Tracy Pennycuick (R-24) is inviting Pennsylvania women who served in the armed forces to take part in a state Capitol ceremony celebrating their service.

The ceremony will be held at noon on Monday, June 10, 2024. Female veterans and family members of female veterans are invited. The event will include an exhibit featuring photos and biographies of women who served.

Register and upload material at The deadline for all entry and RSVP information is April 5.  

“Women across Pennsylvania have served the commonwealth and nation with distinction and we’re inviting them to tell their stories,” said Pennycuick. “If you’re a female military veteran, or have a female family member who served, please contact us so that we can celebrate your experience and inspire the next generation of women in uniform.”

Pennycuick sponsored legislation observing Women Veterans Day in Pennsylvania each year on June 12. The first Women Veterans Day Capitol exhibit was displayed in 2023.

While women have served in the American military since before the United States was established as a nation, it was not until 1948 that women were recognized as military members or veterans. By 2040 it is estimated that women will make up 17% of the total veteran population.
