The Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce and the Museum of the American Military Family have joined with the New Mexico Humanities Council to offer Talking Service, a new reading and discussion program for veterans to reflect on their service and the transition to civilian life.
Veterans will come together over the course of 4 sessions in April to discuss a variety of readings about military service. Each piece of literature, from the anthology Standing Down is a jumping off point for veterans to reflect on their own experiences in the military and returning home. Caroline LeBlanc, Writer-in-Residence, Museum of the American Military Family, will facilitate the discussions.
Every participant will receive a copy of Standing Down. Call 505 504-6830 for more info, or to participate. Slots/books are limited, so reserve a slot today!
