Twitter Tuesday: @WomenMarines

Drumroll please…it’s Twitter Tuesday!

Today’s Twitter Tuesday user: @WomenMarines

@WomenMarines is the Twitter account for the non-profit organization, The Women Marines Association, which is the only veterans association for and about women who have served as Marines, according to their Twitter bio. Their official website is interactive with videos, and a community. This organization is different from other veterans organizations because they are solely for women, and female service to this country is often ignored or overlooked.

Twitter Tuesday: @FreeMountaineer

This Twitter Tuesday post is a special post because recently one of my Twitter friends became dissociated with an organization he helped found.

@FreeMountaineer is a United States Army Veteran who Served from 1994-2004 as an M1 Tank Crewman and a UH-60 Helicopter Mechanic, according to OperationPTSD.org. Mac was reaching out to those suffering through his Twitter and on OperationPTSD.org, since he is no longer associated with the organization, I hope he is still working to end the stigma of PTSD.
