Women Honored in School Program

Posted: Updated:

There are around 6,000 women veterans recorded in the state of North Dakota.

Dakota Sisterhood of Women Veterans officials say it tends to be more difficult to pick the female veterans out of a crowd.

World War Two veterans Margaret Muus and Joy Reiten were recognized at a Patriotism Assembly today at Jim Hill.

Muus enlisted in 1943 and served as an Intelligence and Research Officer for the Marine Corps.

Reiten went into defense training after graduation high school and in 1943, she volunteered for the US Navy waves.

Muus and Reiten added their signatures to the Dakota Sisterhood of Women Veterans quilt --- bringing the total number of signatures to 209.

(Stephanie Belohlavek-Geiger, Dakota Sisterhood of Women Veterans) "We thought it would be nice to be able to bring some of that to the women and be able to say, we honor you. We see you and we validate what you did and the sacrifices you've made for our nation." >

Signature collection for the quilt began in 2010.

    Crews working to keep the fire contained and those keeping people a safe distance away certainly didn't go hungry today.
