The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs will hold its first annual summit for women veterans, women actively serving in the military and wives of military members.

- Friday night reception with karaoke
- Presentation on PTSD

The summit is part of the state’s women veterans program which was established in July 2008. Approximately 300 women are expected at the event, although an estimated 23,000 women veterans live in the state.
