Included are 80 female veterans aged 80 and older. VABHHCS is proud to have the only World War II Native American Women Air Force Service Pilot (WASP) amongst its roles.
VA Black Hills has trained designated women's healthcare providers who have a special interest in providing comprehensive primary care to our female veterans.
