Meet Our Plank Members

Plankowner is a term used by the United States Navy and has consequently been variously defined by different units. Women who became Women Veterans Alliance members during the first year are referred to as Plank Members. Our founder Melissa Washington served in the Navy and felt this was an applicable name for all of those that believed in her and the mission of Women Veterans Alliance.
