Veterans Public Programs

Programs on the Military Experience for the General Public

Our Veterans-related public programs provide an opportunity to open dialogue between the civilian public and Veterans about the experience of military service. These programs, which have been organized and designed alongside Veterans and Veterans organizations, aim to illuminate and explore service from multiple perspectives. There are currently no public programs scheduled.

If you would like more information about any of our Veterans groups, please email Leah Kuehn or call her at (207) 773-5051.
