The Alliance for National Defense
We’re AND — a positive voice for American military women.
American military women have earned our nation’s gratitude and our support.
Women have served in all American conflicts. It’s been 60 years since women became official, permanent members our military services.
Today, women are a vital, irreplaceable part of our all-volunteer forces. They have served — often in harm’s way — with distinction alongside their brothers and, unfortunately, all-too-many including those depicted in our Gallery of Heroines have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
At AND, veterans join with concerned civilians to cover their back, encouraging and promoting the vital role of military women and men in our nation's defense.
A non-profit, tax-exempt educational organization, AND collects the facts and figures – factual, thoughtful, objective information on US military women and provides them to scholars, the media, national decision makers and the public.
AND brings organizations and individuals together to continually monitor the accomplishments of American military women and the level of support they receive from their services. And we spread the word so everyone can better understand their sacrifices and the often unique challenges military women face in their services and in their lives.
We hope you will find this site a valuable resource on the status of and issues effecting military women.
We hope you will learn, join in discussions and make this site your personal resource.
AND is a membership organization and we invite you to join with us in supporting American Military women with your time and money.
Again, welcome to The Alliance for National Defense.
