Congressional Testimony Highlights Lioness Experience

John Wilson, assistant national legislative director of Disabled American Veterans (DAV), testified before Congress on April 23rd, 2009 about the lack of documentation of women's participation in combat. Citing Rebecca Nava's experience, he argued that without such documentation in military personnel and medical records, women face obstacles in proving their combat service connection and obtaining proper disability benefits.
