A Powerful vitalvoices Event: ‘What Veterans Wish You Knew’
Military service is difficult, demanding, and dangerous. Returning to civilian life is difficult, demanding, and disruptive. It poses challenges for those who have served in our armed forces as well as for their loved ones.
UHD Center for Public Service & Community Research’s vitalvoices Speaker Series presents, “The De-Institutionalization Process: What Veterans Wish You Knew,” 2 – 3:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 10 in CPS Building, C100.
This in-person and Zoom event will give a detailed, first-hand look into issues veterans face when returning to civilian life and what they wish others knew to support them better. Join UHD’s Dr. Clete Snell, Professor of Criminal Justice & Social Work, guests from U.S. Vets, and UHD’s Office of Veterans Services for a very important discussion.
