SURFPAC Celebrates Women’s History Month

SURFPAC Women's History Month celebration

The staff of Commander Naval Surface Force. U.S. Pacific Fleet (SURFPAC) formally recognized the contributions of women throughout the span of time during a Women’s History Month celebration.

Navy commands were encouraged to focus on this year’s national theme, “Celebrating Women of Character, Courage and Commitment,” honoring the extraordinary and often unrecognized determination and tenacity of women.

During the ceremony, guest speaker Master Chief Kathleen Hansen (Ret.) reflected on her achievements during 30 years of naval service. Also sharing their stories of service, Rita O’Neil and Beverly Newak spoke of their time in the Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Services (WAVES) program. Launched during WWII, WAVES allowed more than 85,000 women to serve outside the secretarial realm in uniformed capacity.
