AUSA’s Army Matters Podcast

Special Edition: Herstory, Women Contributing to the Army and Beyond

June 29, 2020

Today we honor all the extraordinary women who have served in the U.S. Military. Due to COVID-19, AUSA had to cancel its Women’s History Month program back in March, so we are hosting this Special Edition podcast to highlight the voices of women who have served. Joining us today are two remarkable women who chose Army careers, CW5(R) Phyllis Wilson, President of the Women in Military Service for America Memorial Foundation, and CSM(R) Donna Brock, Executive Coach, Facilitator, Community Coach for Together With Veterans, and Treasurer for the Army Womens Foundation. They describe what motivated them to join the Army, their accomplishments and challenges, mentorship, and how their military experience has affected their life today. Recommendations for future topics are welcome via email at podcast@ausa.org.

  •  Guests:

    • Chief Warrant Officer 5 (Retired) Phyllis Wilson, President, Women in Military Service for America (WIMSA) Memorial Foundation
    • Command Sergeant Major (Retired) Donna Brock, Executive Coach, Facilitator, Community Coach for Together With Veterans, and Treasurer for the Army Womens Foundation
  • Host: Nzinga Curry, AUSA’s Director of Education & Programs

Army Real Talk, a segment of AUSA’s Army Matters Podcast, aims to help AUSA and the Army better connect with the younger generation.
