Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative is proud to support the Chamber’s Salute to the Armed Forces Luncheon as the Red, White & Blue sponsor! NOVEC is a partner of Serve Our Co-Ops; Serve Our Country, an initiative to honor and employ veterans, service members and their spouses.

 

Join us for this special annual luncheon where we will honor active-duty service members alongside the veterans in our midst. We have invited the Garrison Commanders from Fort Belvoir and Marine Corps Base Quantico to provide an update on their respective posts. We will offer special recognition for outstanding Soldiers and Marines and hear from our Veterans Council on what’s new for 2018.

 Keynote Speaker:  Ginger Miller

 

 

As a United States Navy Veteran and a formerly homeless veteran herself, Ginger served her country proudly and continues to serve as Founder of Women Veterans Interactive, an award-winning nonprofit organization that advocates for Women Veterans and their families who are experiencing homelessness. The organization brings a network of support that helps women veterans build confidence, connect in their communities reintegrate them back into the workforce and ultimately eradicate homelessness. To date, they have served over 1,000 women veterans. She has been invited to speak at the U.S. Naval Academy, Homeland Security, Department of Veterans Affairs, HUD and the Secret Service, among others.

Some of her most noted highlights include the following:

 

  • Honored by the White House and First Lady Michelle Obama as a White House Champion of Change
  • A beneficiary of the BET Honors
  • Appearances on Fox 5 News, News Channel 4 & Defense News Networks
  • Featured in The Washington Post, DAV Magazine and Essence Magazine

Ginger also served as Chair of the Sub-Committee for the Government Employee Advisory Committee. The Committee advises the Secretary of Veterans Affairs on the Department’s effectiveness in delivering and administering benefits, programs, and services to minority Veterans.
