WHAT: Vets Town Hall is a community forum aiming to increase communication and understanding between local veterans and the community at large. This event is non-political, and all perspectives are valued. There will be no question-and-answer period or debate on American foreign policy. Attendees will simply listen and learn about what it was like to serve in the wars that this nation has chosen to fight.

Vets Town Halls were originated by author Sebastian Junger (War, Tribe) with the aim of increasing communication and understanding between veterans and civilians in their communities.

WHO: Mark Otto, President and Executive Director for the United War Veterans Council and 2x combat veteran of the United States Marine Corp will serve as the evening’s emcee and will be joined by a number of veterans who will speak for up to ten minutes about what it was like to serve their country, including: Silver Star recipient Roger Sparks, Founder of Pathfinder Labs and Purple Heart recipient, Elana Duffy, and U.S. Marine Corps (Recon) Veteran, Adam Levine.

Sebastian Junger, Founder and Director of Vets Town Hall, will also be in attendance, as well as war Veteran and entrepreneur, James Hendon. Other attendees include Gold Star Spouse, Sara Wilkinson, and GORUCK co-founder, Emily McCarthy.
