Johnson Brunetti Celebrates 100 Years of Women in Military

After 100 Years of Service, Female Vets Have Yet to Receive Proper Recognition

Julia Lempeck

Together with the Manchester Elks Lodge, Johnson Brunetti helped to celebrate 100 Years of Women in Military at the 3rd Annual Veterans Luncheon. The luncheon took place on Thursday, December 6, 2018 – the day before Pearl Harbor Day. Veteran attendees enjoyed a delicious warm lunch, the national anthem, and “God Bless America,” speeches, presentations, and a feature about women in combat. Thanks to Zahner’s Clothiers, the veterans also took home with them warm winter apparel like socks, vests, gloves, and jackets, as well as personal toiletry items.

This year, the guest of honor was 101-year-old Julia Lempeck, a New Britain resident and veteran of World War II. She served stateside with the Women’s Army Corps as a clerk typist. In July 1946, she was honorably discharged. At this time, she earned the American Service Medal, World War II Victory Medal, and Good Conduct Medal. Unfortunately, her brother Andrew was killed in action during the war. You can learn more about Julia and her life in this article written by the New Britain Herald.

There were many other women in attendance who were honored on that day, and Johnson Brunetti was thankful to have been part of such a wonderful event. “Of all the things we do every year, this event is the one that all of our staff ask about. The folks involved today – it’s not something they’re required to do, it’s something they asked to do.” – Eric Hogarth, CFP®, Managing Partner of Johnson Brunetti.
