Beth Kubala Joins Virtual Women Veterans Recognition Day
New York State's Virtual Women Veterans Recognition Day took place via Zoom on June 12, 2020. Joining Betty and Michael D. Wohl Veterans Legal Clinic (VLC) Director Beth Kubala as a panelist at the online event were Syracuse University Vice Chancellor Mike Haynie and Nick Armstrong, Senior Director for Research and Analytics, Institute for Veterans and Military Families, as well as other leaders from across the state.
Kubala spoke about the legal services provided by VLC, and she encouraged women veterans in attendance to explore the wide range of benefits offered through the US Department of Veterans Affairs and New York State. “Do not hesitate to apply for the benefits that you have earned, and that you deserve.” she emphasized.
Women Veterans Recognition Day is an annual event held at the New York State capitol in Albany (the accompanying photo is from the 2019 event).
Assemblywoman and US Army veteran Pamela J. Hunter of Syracuse hosted this year's virtual celebration that brought together women veterans, state legislators— who expressed their gratitude for the service and sacrifice of the veterans—and state veterans organizations. In addition to Syracuse University, panelists represented the Binghamton Veteran Center, Veterans of Foreign Wars, the PFC Joseph P. Dwyer Program, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
