Today’s Sacramento Bee story about women veterans included a reference to a new publication by the California Department of Veterans Affairs that aims to educate advocates, employers and others about the female military experience, both during and after service.

Lindsey Sin, the department’s deputy secretary of Women Veterans Affairs, said the “toolkit” is the first state-level, in-depth publication in the nation designed to promote understanding of women who have served in the military and provide best practices for offering services to them.
