As home to eleven military installations, a distinguished military academy, and an estimated 400,000 veterans, the state of Maryland shares a long and important history with America’s armed forces. Veterans and active duty military personnel are our neighbors, co-workers, and our family members. Maryland Humanities, in partnership with veterans’ service organizations across the state, has developed a series of programs for veterans and active duty military, their families, and the public at large that use the humanities to explore the history, experience, and meaning of war and military service.
These programs promote discussion, understanding, and support current and former service members by offering opportunities for them to give voice to and reflect on issues of particular interest and concern. Programs offered:
- Veterans Book Groups
- Veterans Oral History Project
