In its 2022 commemoration of Women’s History Month, the Pa. Commission for Women honored Doylestown veteran Angela McDonough for her time in the U.S. Navy. McDonough, of Doylestown, was one of 21 Pa. servicewomen recognized for their military service.

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

In bestowing the commemoration, Pa. First Lady Frances Wolf said: “Tom and I are deeply grateful for and inspired by the strength, resilience, and pride, of the service of the women we are celebrating today.

“These valiant leaders have made great sacrifices to protect our commonwealth, our country, and our freedoms. It is important that we elevate their stories and accomplishments to express our appreciation and encourage the next generation of military women,” she commented.

Maureen Weigl, Deputy Adjutant General for Veterans Affairs spoke of the commitment of female servicepeople, thanking them as they continue to “push the boundaries.”

Weigl cited that women today make up over 16 percent of U.S. Armed Forces. Pa. proudly notes that more than 65,000 women from the commonwealth have served or continue to serve.
