VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- The 2007 Heritage to Horizons Women's Training Symposium is slated for Oct. 31-Nov.1 in Springfield, Va.
As the Air Force celebrates its 60th Anniversary this year, this is prime opportunity to highlight and learn from the accomplishments of the Air Force - including women's roles in the Air Force in the past, present and future. The 2007 Heritage to Horizons Women's Training Symposium is open to all members of the U.S. Armed Forces, as well as DoD civilian personnel.
