As a female leader who served my country four years honorably in the United States army, I believe the structure and discipline of the Veterans Fire Corps (VFC) has a lot to offer vets all around the world. Finding this program has been not only an eye opener, but has also had a possitive affect on me as well. I believe more females should get involved, because it is very beneﬁcial to us as well. I use to serve my country with an M16, now I serve with a chainsaw. I look forward to my future accomplishments in this program.
