WJWL Honors Women in the Military

GFWC Ohio Warren Junior Women’s League’s Public Issue committee recently honored women in the military. Veteran Michelle Piacquadio from Niles was presented a Proclamation from Trumbull County Commissioner Mauro Cantalamessa on behalf of Warren Mayor Doug Franklin during ‘Women’s Veterans Week’. Michelle grew up in Niles, OH. She graduated from John F. Kennedy High School in 1972. She left her job at the Eastwood Mall “Harvest House” to join the Women’s Army Corp in 1973. She was an Army medical corpsman and a behavioral science specialist staff sergeant. Michelle left the Army in 1981 to get her Master’s degree in Health Care Social Work. She joined the Virginia Army National Guard as a medical corpsman until 1985. Michelle recently semi-retired from the Andrews Air Force Base Mental Health Clinic where she counseled service members from all branches of the service. She has returned to live “back home” near family and friends and hopes to continue to help those who have served and are serving our great country.
