Aloha my name is Rebecca Pash, and I am an American Airman-Wingman-Leader-Warrior, I’m also a Finalist for the 2019 Ms. Veteran America competition which will be held October 13, 2019 in Hollywoo, CA.
Ms. Veteran America is a VOICE! Women Veterans we are WARRIORS that have served our country and know what “service before self” is. As a female veteran with 20 years of honorable service, I too faced the housing and employment issues upon my retirement when I moved my Ohana to another state. I want to be the voice of women veteran’s across the country and be the voice of their concerns. Women veterans are the fastest growing demographic, and we are often the most visible in service but the most invisible veterans.
In order to raise awareness and provide homeless women veteran’s and their Ohana with safe and suitable housing the Ms. Veteran America was created in order to raise awareness and funds for Final Salute Inc. (EIN 80-0660380) the sole benefactor. My goal is to raise as much money as possible to support this worthy cause!
Together we can educate, encourage, and unite our military community.
The mission of Final Salute Inc. is to provide homeless women Veterans with safe and suitable housing.
It is estimated that there are currently 55,000 homeless women Veterans in the United States on any given day. For the sacrifices they and their families have made, this is an unacceptable state for any of them to be in. Final Salute Inc. believes in paying women Veterans with the proper respects due to them for the service they have provided to our country. Final Salute also works with the Veteran in establishing her plan towards independence.
The needs of homeless female Veterans are immediate. They need your support today!
