Army Historical Foundation Calls for Stories of Women Soldiers

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Army Historical Foundation is calling for women Soldiers, or loved ones and friends on their behalf, to submit their stories of service to the Foundation’s Registry of the American Soldier. The Registry is a searchable online record of photos and Soldiers’ stories that will appear in the future National Museum of the United States Army, currently under construction at Fort Belvoir, Va. The Foundation is encouraging women to enter their stories to ensure the Registry reflects the diversity of the 30 million Americans who have served in the U.S. Army.

“The military community rightly commemorates Women’s History Month every March by highlighting the contributions of our women service members, but it’s important that these Soldiers also see their time in uniform permanently honored, year-round,” said retired Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody, Foundation board member and the first women to achieve the rank of four-star general. “The Registry of the American Soldier provides a way for all Soldiers to see their stories forever preserved in the nation’s future home for U.S. Army history.”

More than 117,000 Soldiers are currently entered in the Registry, which is already accessible online. Photos of Soldiers in uniform accompanying their stories are encouraged. There is no cost to submit a story. The Foundation also hosts a Registry for Army family members; Department of the Army Civilians (DAC); and other supporters of the Army; and a separate Registry for Army service animals.

To submit an entry for the Registry, visit armyhistory.org and click “Registries.”

ORWM 18 – The Tinkle Belle

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

I almost walked right past The Tinker Belle booth at the recent Outdoor Retailer Show in Denver. But then, out of the corner of my eye, I realized what was going on.

As more and more women enjoy the outdoors, and join the military, they have to come to grips with the challenges of relieving themselves.

The Tinkle Belle is anatomically shaped to match a lady’s parts in order to prevent leakage, and long enough that she won’t pee on her shoes. However, it’s pliable shape folds into a discrete carrying case. Finally, it’s antimicrobial to avoid bad odor.

50 Female Gun Owners Set Sights on Washington DC

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

AUSTIN, TX — Women from around the country are preparing to travel to the U.S. Capitol as part of the DC Project, a nonpartisan initiative that brings 50 women, one from each state, to Washington, DC, to meet with their legislators about issues addressing the Second Amendment. The women, who will be meeting with Congressional members and staff from June 20-23, 2018, have diverse professional experiences, ethnicity, and political beliefs, but share a common interest centered on the appreciation of America’s gun culture.

The DC Project was started by champion shooter Dianna Muller in 2016 to encourage female shooters to meet with legislators in order to give politicians a direct connection to the fastest growing demographic of gun owners. Females provide unique stories and perspectives on the attraction of the 2nd Amendment, including competition shooting sports, commerce, self-defense, hunting, and conservation.

“The Second Amendment is part of the United States Constitution and does not belong to one party,” said Muller. “Female gun owners are diverse, and have individualized stories and accounts of why this Amendment is so important to them. These stories need to be shared as they are representative of many within legislators’ constituencies.”

A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG) is the presenting sponsor of the DC Project. With a nationwide network of firearms instructors and female gun owners, AG & AG is a strong voice for the Second Amendment. Robyn Sandoval, Executive Director, is making her third trip with the DC Project to meet with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

“A Girl & A Gun is honored to be a part of this initiative. As a mother who was a supporter of gun control for decades, I now devote my life to empowering women with the safe use and storage of firearms,” said Sandoval. “It is important that our lawmakers learn our stories and have access to our resources for education on gun-related issues.”

The DC Project will host several events during the week as participants give speeches and meet with lawmakers to address the rising demographic of female gun ownership; the value of the 2nd Amendment in today’s society; and the importance of the preservation of America’s gun culture, from conservation and commerce to competitive sports, hunting, and self-defense.

Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules: A Children’s Book About Gun Safety hits online stores

KANSAS CITY, MO (January 4, 2018) – Author Julie Golob is a prominent voice for sharing safe, responsible gun ownership throughout the firearms industry and beyond. Golob is a decorated multi-time world and national champion, an Army veteran, and a mother of two, and her newest book, Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules: A Children’s Book About Gun Safety, encourages families to begin having conversations about firearms with children at a young age.

There are millions of guns in the United States alone. Despite how polarizing the media and politics make the topic of firearms, Golob emphasizes that we must talk with our children about guns and firearm safety to protect them and help prevent deaths and injuries. Her book Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules helps parents break the ice with kids on this taboo topic.

Golob’s career as a competitive shooter (she holds more than 50 world and national titles), military service, and expertise as a firearms instructor helped prepare her to write her first children’s book.

“I’ve been around firearms and the shooting sports all my life. As a mother of two young children, I wrote Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules to continue to teach my daughters about guns and firearm safety at a young age. My goal is to provide parents this educational resource to help encourage an open conversation with kids, because gun safety is for everyone.”

Throughout the 40-page book, Golob uses colorful and realistic imagery, illustrated by Nancy Batra, to inspire vital conversations about guns—starting by comparing firearms to other potentially dangerous adult tools. Parents and children can view some of the many different types of firearms and what they can look like. Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules provides parents with the opportunity to educate curious minds about how firearms work, call out the most dangerous parts of a gun, and identify adults children might know and encounter who safely and responsibly use firearms.

In addition, Golob provides a useful guide for parents on how to make the most out of the book, so that they can answer questions and establish family and home rules regarding firearms. Coloring printouts and additional free resources are also available at kidsgunsafetybook.com.
