Hundreds of female veterans are meeting in Salem this weekend for a special conference. Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs spokesperson Mike Allegre says the "Oregon Women's Veterans Conference" has been going on for many years. They are expecting about 400 women to attend from throughout Oregon and other parts of the northwest. “For women to come to this conference a lot of what they find is camaraderie; especially when you have young veterans in their 20's mingling with veterans in their 70's even in their 90's from WW2. They have a lot in common; can build relationships that don't normally occur in a normal social setting. So it’s really neat to see these women getting together; having gone through some of the same things."  It will focus on heath and other benefits that women veterans are entitled to. He says the last conference that was held in Salem drew about 200 women veterans.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
