La Jolla, CA – The Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial recently hosted its 2nd Annual Women’s History Brunch, honoring over 140 servicewomen spanning 80+ years of service.

The Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial is a United States National Memorial, and it is not federally funded. It is maintained by the Mt. Soledad Memorial Association Inc., supported solely through Memberships, Donations, and Plaque sales. The 2nd Annual Women’s History Brunch was a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by servicewomen throughout history, and the importance of supporting organizations like the Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial.
