Honoring UT System's Women Veterans

Main page content

In honor of Women Veterans Day on June 12, UT System’s Leadership Development & Veterans’ Affairs team created a video to honor and thank women veterans. Texas has more female veterans than any other state—about 177,500. However, studies indicate as many as 70 percent of women veterans do not self-identify as veterans, which can cause them to miss out on benefits and support systems established in honor of their unique sacrifices. To ensure all veterans receive their hard-earned benefits and support, UT System women veterans are asked to self-identify with Leadership Development & Veterans’ Affairs. Contact Dr. Larry Wallace at or Tony Cucolo at to self-identify and further the cause of honoring women veterans.
