Wed. Feb. 14 - Veterans Journey Home at Odd Fellows Hall - 7 PM
DISCUSSION WITH FILMMAKER AND CHANGE AGENT
Wednesday, February 14, 2018, 7 PM
Odd Fellows Hall, 526 Main Street, Half Moon Bay
Returning home is killing U.S. combat vets.
More veterans are dying after they return home from combat missions than are dying overseas. But the problem isn’t them; it’s us. We don’t know how to properly receive them.
Veterans Journey Home aims to tell a different kind of “Hero’s Journey,” about American veterans struggling to transition emotionally and psychologically from soldiers back into civilians.
