The Metro-Manhattan Links honors female veterans
5/31/2013, 1:30 p.m.
The Metro-Manhattan Links held its chapter meeting at the Alma Rangel Housing Community Room in Harlem and honored two women veterans, Carlina Gooding (U.S. Navy) and Metro-Manhattan Links Chapter member LaShann D. Hall (retired Air Force senior airman) for their services in the U.S. military.
This is the first occasion in which the Metro Links ever honored women who have served in the armed forces. Also at this special chapter meeting, Metro Links, with its signature program to encourage minority males to "Go High School, Go College," congratulated six of its "Young Achievers," three who are attending college and three who are graduating from high school and have been accepted to college.
The Alma Rangel Housing Community Room is a cozy place with a patio, kitchen and piano in the dining area that is great for live entertainment.
