Discussion Groups Sponsored by the Durham Veterans Affairs Health Care System and the National Humanities Center
Join chaplains from the Durham Veterans Affairs Health Care System as they explore the Veteran’s experience through fiction and poetry in discussion groups in Raleigh, Durham, and Greenville.
Participants will consider how storytellers from ancient times to the present day have interpreted the foundations of military service—patriotism, duty, loyalty, sacrifice, and heroism. They will examine what happens in combat and how combat affects soldiers and, through them, family and friends. And they will explore how the nation remembers, honors, and sometimes exploits the Veteran’s service.
The Durham group will focus on the experience of women Veterans. The Raleigh and Greenville groups will be open to all Veterans and their family members.
Enrollment is limited. Register using the form below, or by calling the National Humanities Center at (919) 406-0123.
