Retired Marine Corps Sgt. Maj. Holly Prafke, co-chair of the 2016 Salute to Women of the Military event, speaks to guests at the Tourist and Event Center in Havelock, N.C., Oct. 20, 2016. In 1987, Bee Mayo and Jean Nelson first discussed the idea of recognizing contributions made by women in the military. Today, that legacy lives on in the Eastern North Carolina area through the Salute to Women of the Military. The event continues to identify women as a vital part of the U.S. Armed Forces. Women from all branches of the military who served in the past or are currently serving came to support the occasion. Mayo is a board member of the Craven County Council on Women, and Nelson is the regional director for the NC Council for Women. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Mackenzie Gibson/Released)
