Miss Veteran America competition

Miss Veteran America competition

When the winner of Ms. Veteran America dons the crown each year, she becomes the spokeswoman for female veterans who don’t have a home to come back to after their duties of serving their country have ended.

This growing competition was initiated by Jas Boothe, a female veteran who lost all she owned in Hurricane Katrina. Boothe soon realized she wasn’t alone in the fight against female veteran poverty and created Final Salute Inc. to provide safe housing for homeless women veterans and their children.

Jas Boothe is a 13-year veteran who lost everything she owned during Hurricane Katrina and then found out she had a malignant tumor in her head and neck. Jas had to under go 2 surgeries and 30 cycles of radiation. When her treatment was done, she told them she didn’t have a home or a job to go back to. After a few years she finally landed on her feet and that is when she found that there were tens of thousands of homeless women veterans across the country. Upon learning how many homeless women there were she decided to something about it and founded Final Salute Inc. It is about finding safe and suitable housing for veterans and their children. Since starting in 2010 they have helped over 300 women and children. So to raise awareness for Final Salute Inc., the Ms. Veteran America Competition was created.

The competition gives woman of all branches of the armed forces the opportunity to unite and not only prove their toughness on the battlefield but also their tenacity in civilian life.

I have never heard of this before but I think it is really a great thing they are doing.

This competition gives women vets a chance to come together and enjoy each others comfort and sisterhood. Really seems like a very good thing.
