It takes courage to stand up and speak. It also takes courage to sit down and listen. Veterans of any era who served in any capacity are invited to stand before their community and speak for up to ten minutes about what it was like to serve their country.
Non-veterans are encouraged to attend and listen.
This event is non-political, and all perspectives are valued.
There will be no debate on American foreign policy.
We will simply listen and learn about what it was like to serve in the wars that this nation has chosen to fight.
Vets Town Halls were originated by author Sebastian Junger (War, Tribe) with the aim of increasing communication and understanding between veterans and civilians in their communities.
Join us for a Vets Town Hall in Jacksonville at GORUCK HQ on Friday, November 4 at 6pm
Location allows for both indoor and outdoor attendance. Refreshments will be provided.
If you are a veteran who would like to speak at this event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
