    Harlem Vet Center Post 9/11 Veterans Virtual Meeting

    The Harlem Vet Center will hold a virtual meeting for post 9/11 veterans on Thursday, April 28, 3-4pm (Eastern Time).  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. 

    For post 9/11 veterans, their time in service is defined by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Given the abrupt and inconclusive withdrawals, these can be difficult and isolating times for these veterans.  Camaraderie is the hallmark of military service and veterans can find strength in each other.  Join this virtual group to lend strength to and find strength in fellow post 9/11 veterans.

    For more information and to register, contact Richard Cartagena at [email protected]
