I attended a WINC weekend Retreat with fellow women Veterans. This was the first time in 50 years of being a Vet that I got together with a group of other women Veterans. After meeting, getting to know each other, the rain didn't stop us from enjoying the weekend. Besides talking, getting a binder with some self help guidance, we did several crafts, made signs, decorated cement pavers, played some fun games, yoga, horseback riding, and a fun cooking dinner contest, which was a tie! Meeting this group of women was a great experience for me and I hope to attend next year. Proud to be a woman Vietnam Veteran.
The winc program has so much to offer women veterans. Winc supplies women with a safe place to open up and not feel isolated or lost. Winc is a sisterhood of women helping each other to be the best of themselves in spite of all that they have gone through. No one knows what women veterans go thru accept another woman veteran. Winc supplies a safe haven for women veterans.
WINC is an excellent avenue for connecting with your military sisters! I thoroughly enjoyed attending the women veterans weekend retreat in August, creating friendships, and being able to talk through experiences only understood by other female veterans.
I have to say as a VET myself, prior to meeting Zaneta Adams and the women of WINC, that I had never thought of womens trama as any different from mens. Needless to say, I was incredibly wrong about this. I was extremely disappointed to find out that there are no treatments or facilities out there to help them with their gender specific tramas. This is when I decided to become involved and become an advocate for their cause using all resources available to me to help grow their cause and get the recognition they need. As a male VET it's important for me to know that our sisters know we see them and they matter!
WINC is a phenomenal group for women vets and provides much needed services to women vets that are transitioning or have been in civilian world for years but unaware of what is available to them. They provide resources and a safe haven to interact with other women vets, to bond and heal. WINC is not just an organization it's a military family in and of its own! I'm not just a donor but also a member!
With WINC, I have encountered all kind of wonderful, stuff, I was being brave to go get stuff done.

They sent me to Camp Courage, It gave me the Courage to tell my story and start getting the help I needed. An awesome group of Women!
WINC has helped me by giving me responsibilities, being a 100% disabled veteran I can volunteer my time and I am held accountable for things. I have encountered all kind of wonderful women veterans and have created new friendships. I have also volunteered at various events in the community and have some great networking opportunities.
Thanks to WINC I was able to connect to other Military woman veterans that could relate to the same things I experienced in the service. Thanks Zaneata for your amazing organization, 1SG (Retired) Zenaida Cruz. US Army
I have had the distinct pleasure of meeting Zaneta and the rest of the people involved in this organization last year at thier first annual gala. I have never met anyone more passionate about helping female Veterans,it radiates through everything they say and do.
Hearing the Veterans they help talk about how they have been treated through WINC is inspirational. I look forward to hearing and seeing more positive results from WINC for a long time to come.
WINC gave us agenda time and helped promote our entrepreneurship education program, Michigan Veteran Entrepreneur Lab, to veterans connected to WINC. We were especially grateful for the opportunity to meet women veterans and talk together about entrepreneurship as well as outreach and recruitment strategies that make sensefor military connected people. They understood exactly what we are trying to do and made a good connection to further our program goals. Thanks, WINC! Www.gvsu.edu/mve
