PROGRAM: Veteran’s Voices

Current Initiative: Standing Together National Partner: NEH Subject: Varies, War/Veterans Audience: Veterans

Veterans’ Voices is a reading and discussion group program for veterans and their families. At each event, participants read aloud from classical and contemporary literary texts about war, military service, and the return to civilian life after combat. Following those readings, experienced discussion leaders—all veterans themselves—facilitate conversations among the participants, exploring how the texts relate to their own experiences, and allowing for reflection on combat, the meaning of service, and civic responsibility.
