Join us for our second annual tribute the women soilders that lost their lives in service.

Memorial Day is about more than barbecuing it was intended for all Americans to reflect on those who paid  the ultimate price of sacrafice.

Featuring Elaine Donnelly, founder and President of the Center for Military Readiness, an independent public policy organization that specializes in military personnel issues. Founded in 1993, CMR advocates high, single standards in training, and sound priorities in military/social policies.


Secretary of Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger appointed Mrs. Donnelly to be a member of the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services (DACOWITS) for a three-year term (1984-1986). In 1992, President George H.W. Bush appointed her to the Presidential Commission on the Assignment of Women in the Armed Forces.

As a member of the DACOWITS and the presidential commission, Mrs. Donnelly participated in fact-finding visits to numerous military bases all over the country, including the Army’s Fort Bragg, three Marine training bases, the Naval Academy and U.S. Military Academy, several ships, submarines and a SEAL training facility.
