    Providers Celebrate Women"s History month

    The Airborne Division Sustainment Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division participated a division lead volunteer run and had leaders speak at several events this year to celebrate those brave women in uniform who have served and those female Soldiers who still serve today.
    Women’s History Month is a month of celebrating those women through out our Nations history that have fought for equality, justice and equal opportunities.
    Providers started off woman’s history month by transitioning a portion of the Warrior restaurant into an art gallery of female Soldiers from different military occupation specialties across the Brigade. Soldiers were able to enjoy a delicious lunch and sing karaoke. The cooks of the Warrior restaurant spent the day before to prep the dining facility for the following days meal and art gallery.
    The week following the meal the Command Sgt. Maj. Tonya Sims was invited as a guest speaker at the North Carolina Milvets Summit in Raleigh North Carolina.
    “Your journey wearing the uniform or being connected to someone who has, in not a mistake and it has not gone unnoticed,” said Airborne Division Sustainment Brigade Command Sgt. Maj. Tonya Sims.

The run consisted of a three-mile route to show that the Soldiers of the 82nd support and respect the fellow female Soldiers to their left and right.

Sgt. Maj. Sims spoke on what it means to be leader and how hard fought it has been for women Soldiers to fight for the absolute right to leadership positions.
    “The safety are those individuals who have recognized the impact women have historically made in the armed services. It is our people who are our greatest strength. It is important to highlight the accomplishment of women to break the stereo type and show our military is inclusive of all people,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Sims.
