Have you ever wanted to sit down and speak and hear from our heroes, our veterans?
Are you a veteran that would like to learn about the Veterans History Project?
Veterans who served in the United States military, in any capacity, from World War II through recent conflicts will be onsite to discuss their service. As a salute to this annual, historically and ongoing important holiday, please join us for this special event.
Franky Ortega, WWII Airborne Demonstration Team member, will introduce the veterans and the Veterans History Project. Together with the group Wings Over Wendys, they will lead a panel discussion with an open Question-and-Answer forum for the public.
The purpose of the event is to collect, preserve and make accessible the personal accounts of local San Fernando Valley veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand their selfless service. Their stories are amazing and you will find each inspirational on this Veterans Day weekend.
Bring your father, mother, grandfather, grandmother or other family members that are veterans. Share your stories. Listen to stories. Enjoy this event.
All veterans and their families are FREE to attend this event.
If you are a veteran or family member and will not pay a fee, RSVP HERE.
If you are a non-veteran and will pay the $10/person, please RSVP on EVENTBRITE.
