I wanted to be sure you knew about the Veterans Town Hall that Congressman Jim McDermott is hosting this Veterans Day, Friday, November 11, 2016. It will be held at the First United Methodist Church in Seattle, located at 180 Denny Way, and begins at 1:00pm.
This unique event, inspired by renowned author and war reporter Sebastian Junger, is a community forum aiming to establish a greater understanding between local veterans and the communities they served. In the tradition of warrior storytelling, veterans are invited to describe the pride, grief, rage, or quiet appreciation of life that the war bestowed upon them. Each veteran will have up to five minutes to speak about what their service means to them through a story, summary of service, message, letter home, excerpt from a war journal, or even the story behind a photograph. The role of non-veterans will be to attend, to listen, and to learn.
The Congressman would be honored if you would accept his invitation to join us for this special event. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 206.553.7170.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, and please help spread the word to veterans and friends in the community. Thank you!
Office of U.S. Representative Jim McDermott
