March is Women's History Month and VA Butler Healthcare wants to say a special thank you to the more than 200,000 women currently serving, and to all those that have served. VA Butler is committed to honor and care for women Veterans and encourages all women Veterans to contact our Women Veterans Healthcare Program Coordinator at 800-362-8262, ext. 2756.
Women Veteran Tanya Lunn joined the Air Force about a year before she graduated high school through their delayed enlistment program. "Once I officially graduated, I enlisted and was sent off to basic training." Tanya was in the Air Force from 1996-1999; most of her time was spent in Tuscan, Arizona, although she also traveled to Las Vegas and Saudi Arabia.
While transitioning out of the military, Tanya learned about VA care and signed up. She’s actually been to five different VA facilities across the nation, but now receives care at VA Butler Healthcare.
"My doctors have been really, really good about responding to things I need or questions that I have," said Tanya.
Tanya gets her women's health care through the VA. "As far as women care goes, I just ask Brenda," Tanya said. Brenda Sprouse is the Women Veterans Coordinator at VA Butler. "She always responds really quickly. If she doesn’t know the answer, she’ll find it out for me."
The Women Veterans Healthcare Services Program guarantees that all eligible female Veterans have access to VA benefits and services. For more information, contact VA Butler’s Women Veterans Coordinator at 800-362-8262, ext. 2756 or visit us online at www.butler.va.gov/services/womenvets.asp
