The purpose of this event is to showcase “The Woman Beyond the Uniform“. As women, some of our femininity becomes lost when we wear the uniform; because we have to blend in with the boys. Our grace, poise, beauty and talents become camouflaged during our military service.
Along with being Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Sailors; we are also Mothers, Wives, Daughters, and Sisters!
Proceeds from this event provides housing for homeless female Veterans and their children.

Father of Former Marine Carri Leigh Goodwin
Former Marine Carri Leigh Goodwin – Carri didn’t die by enemy fire, her death was a result of Military Sexual Trauma. Carri was a proud Marine like her father Gary. In 2009, after reporting rape, the Marine Corps released Carri with an Other Than Honorable discharge: on the grounds she had a drinking problem, a personality disorder, and non-combat related post-traumatic stress disorder. 5 days after her discharge, she drank herself to death. Her rapist was still allowed to serve, even though he continued to rape.
