Weekly Winners

Yesterday was the anniversary of shattering another glass ceiling for women.  On July 30, 1942, President Roosevelt signed into law the Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES), a unit of the U.S. Naval Reserve.  Hats off to the women who paved the way for our generation today!
