Mark your calendar for this week's out-of-the-ordinary holidays. After Monday's very well-known Presidents Day holiday, Tuesday, Feb. 19, is a day to recognize the dedication of America's 2 million female veterans.

National Vet Girls ROCK Day was founded this year by Vet Girls ROCK to recognize the contributions of women veterans in the U.S. military and to provide an opportunity for women veterans to celebrate the bonds they formed during their service.

According to National Day Calendar, Vet Girls ROCK serves as a resource for women veterans. With the struggles of transitioning from military to civilian life, Vet Girls ROCK was created to educate, enlighten and support women veterans through professional and personal growth that improves awareness, potential and identifies talents. Women veterans who miss that camaraderie can find it in Vet Girls ROCK.

The organization wants you to share stories of your favorite woman veteran and use #VetGirlsROCKDay on social media.
