Veterans Day Open Mic Town Hall


Sunday, November 11, 2018
3:00 p.m to 5:00 p.m.

This event has expired.

Veterans Town Halls give veterans of all wars a chance to address their community directly and without intermediaries. A veteran speaking at a Veteran Town Hall will look out over a crowd that has many familiar faces in it, as well as complete strangers. These are the people s/he risked her/his life for. These are the people s/he went to war for. No one goes to war and returns home unaffected. This tremendous challenge often effects the families. It’s not fair (or healthy) for them to be left alone with these burdens.

The event should be solemn and non-political. There will be no question-and-answer period afterward. There will be no debate on the merits or justifications of war. There will be no recriminations or accusations. This is simply a chance for veterans to tell the community what it felt like to go to war. Some vets will be incredibly proud. Others will be angry. A few might cry too hard to even be able to speak. A community ceremony like this will return the experience of war to our entire nation rather than just leaving it to the people who fought.
