This weekend, several women who served their country are serving the city of New Orleans. A group of post 9/11 veterans said giving back has given them purpose.

Saturday, more than 50 female veterans from all over the country united for one cause: improving the community.

Liz Skilbeck from St. Paul Minnesota served in the U.S. Air Force from 2001 to 2005. This mother of two is a volunteer platoon leader with The Mission Continues, a national non-profit that empowers veterans adjusting to life at home through service projects.

“It’s always uplifting and motivational to get in another group of strong women,” Skilbeck said.

Today, her mission is to beautify the garden and farm area at Langston Hughes Academy in New Orleans.

“I am on the goat games crew, so we have a goat boat,” Skilbeck said. “We are building a pyramid out of old crates for them to climb and play on.”
