WHEN VETERANS COME HOME - A Community Conversation with Local Veterans on the Transition from Military to Civilian Life




1.4 million Veterans will be returning home nationwide in the next 4 years, and we want to make sure our communities are well-equipped to welcome these servicemen and women home.




“When Veterans Come Home” encourages broader understanding between veteran and civilian communities. Through a panel discussion with local veterans, we encourage open dialogue with the community about issues facing transitioning veterans today. We hope to bridge gaps and build connections to make our communities stronger for all.


We invite you to get to know these veterans as they share their stories about transitioning, and we encourage you to get to know others like them as you meet them in your day-to-day life.




Date: Tuesday April 29, 2014


Time: 6:00 PM-8:00PM


Location: Central Community College—Grand Island, Room 525
