Responses from the Military

“The National Training Center and Fort Irwin recently celebrated our Women’s History Month Celebration.  We invited “We Did It For You,” a traveling ensemble who put on quite a performance for a nearly 350 member audience of Department of the Army Civilians, Military, and Family members.  The group portrayed the journey through early stages of women’s history and their struggle for equal rights through song and laughter, and a very strong message about what they suffered to provide us with the freedoms we have today.  The educational message was powerful and poignant, increasing our awareness and overall knowledge of our history.  If you have this troupe coming your way, put on your seat-belt for a rollercoaster ride you won’t soon forget. Thank you for an outstanding performance…many, many thanks.” – John E. Winkfield, Director Equal Employment Opportunity
