Bucks County’s Angela McDonough was recently honored during an event hosted by the Pennsylvania Commission for Women to honor the state’s female veterans in celebration of Women’s History Month. The event honored 21 women from across the commonwealth representing every branch of the armed services for their brave service and selfless contributions to Pennsylvania and to the nation.

McDonough was commissioned as a Lieutenant in 2001 with the United States Navy. She currently serves as the Medical Administrative Officer and Dental Officer assigned to the 111th Medical Group with the Pennsylvania Air National Guard.

“On behalf of the Pennsylvania Commission for Women, we are honored to recognize the courageous and selfless women who keep Pennsylvania, and our nation, safe,” said Commission Chair Randi Teplitz. “Women who serve make tremendous personal sacrifices and deserve our endless gratitude. We are excited to share the unique stories and accomplishments of 21 women who have triumphed in both the public and private sectors.”

“Over 300,000 women served in Iraq and Afghanistan, 9,000 earned combat action badges, and today, women make up over 16 percent of the United States Armed Forces,” said Maureen Weigl, Deputy Adjutant General for Veterans Affairs. “In Pennsylvania, there are over 65,000 female veterans and service members.”
