Vets Town Hall

man at lectern speaking to an audience

It takes courage to stand up and speak. Veterans of any era who served in any capacity are invited to stand before their community and speak for up to then minutes about what it was like to serve their country.

It also takes courage to sit down and listen. Non-veterans are encouraged to attend and listen. There will be no debate about American foreign policy, simply listening. A moderated Q&A will follow the presentations. Bring your questions and get to know your Veterans!

Registration for this event is encouraged, but not required. See more information for this event and register here
