WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A candidate running for the statehouse celebrated Womens Veteran's Day on June12th.

"We have a huge history in Indiana of women veterans who have done a lot," said Tabitha Bartley, who is currently running as a Democrat for Indiana Senate District 7. "From Opha May Johnson who was from Kokomo and was the first female in the Marine Corps to the first Dean of Women at Purdue who was in the Coast Guard."

Bartley is also a former Marine who had to retire from her career in service due to disability. She said her time serving has prepared her well to take on th e Indiana Statehouse.

She wants to honor the women veterans in our community with a parade at the Indiana Veterans' Home.

"At the Indiana Veterans' Home, they currently have about six women veterans and kind of showcase them, but also all the women veterans in the community and show the community support, we see you and you're visible and your story matters as well," said Bartley.

The parade is happening at 2 p.m. tomorrow, Friday June 12th. Cars will be staged at the Ampitheater and will enter the back entrance of IVH. Click here to learn more about the event.

Bartley is running against incumbent Republican Senator Brian Buchanan. She said priorities for her if elected are education, veterans and quality of life in Indiana. District 7 includes parts of Boone, Tippecanoe, Carroll, White, Clinton and Jasper Counties.
