    Harlem Vet Center Vietnam Veterans Virtual Meeting

    The Harlem Vet Center will hold a virtual meeting for Vietnam veterans on Tuesday, June 28, 1-2pm EDT.  The goal of this meeting is to build relationships with fellow veterans, meet professional health counselors, and find comfort and meeting from each participant's military service. 

    Our time in service is not only defined by active duty, but by our life experiences since.  Recent events can make these increasingly difficult and isolating times for all of us.  But like our service, we are never alone.  Camaraderie is the hallmark of our military experience and through each other we find strength.  Join this virtual group to lend strength to and find strength in fellow Vietnam veterans.

    For more information and to register, contact Amy Margratten at [email protected]
