Veterans Town Hall

Friday, November 10, 2017


The Town’s Community Relations Committee will host a Veterans Town Hall on Friday, November 10 at 2 p.m. in the Town of Chevy Chase Town Hall.  Veterans Town Hall events have been occurring around the nation for the last few years and are advocated by Representative Seth Moulton (D-Mass) who served as a Marine lieutenant in Iraq.  Here is an excerpt from the Veterans Town Hall website (http://www.sebastianjunger.com/vets-town-hall/):

 

"The idea behind a Veterans Town Hall is to give vets of all wars a chance to address their community directly and without intermediaries. As a veteran speaking at a town hall event, you will be addressing a crowd that includes everything from close friends and family to complete strangers. But these are the people you risked your life for; these are the people you went to war for. This is simply a chance for veterans to tell the community what it felt like to go to war."

 

The Town of Chevy Chase has opened up this event to all the Chevy Chase areas of Maryland, to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and to any Wounded Warriors in the Bethesda/Chevy Chase area.  If you are a veteran and would like to speak, please send an email to townoffice@townofchevychase.org or call 301-654-7144.  Please RSVP even if you have expressed interest previously.  We must have the list of vets by November 6.
