Sending Office: Honorable Seth Moulton
We are writing to ask you to join us in continuing a new Veterans Day tradition, the Vets Town Hall, that helps bridge the divide between veterans and their communities. These gatherings provide a forum for veterans to share the pride, grief, or
quiet appreciation of the life that war bestowed upon them, and for non-veterans to listen and to learn. Please join us on Veterans Day 2019, by hosting a Vets Town Hall in your district.
The first Vets Town Hall was held on November 11, 2015, in Marblehead, Massachusetts. The concept, from author Sebastian Junger, recognizes that we all have an innate need to belong to strong groups defined by a clear purpose and understanding.
In the tradition of warrior storytelling, veterans describe the experience of war to their communities and how it has influenced their lives ever since.
Our team has developed a
guide that will assist your team in building your own Veterans Town Hall. Not only will these town halls be as unique as the communities where they are held, but they will also be united in their commitment to help our country collectively heal and bring
meaning to Veterans Day for all.
We are asking every Member to host a Vets Town Hall and become part of a tradition for Veterans Day. If you are interested in joining this growing movement, or have further questions, please contact Matt Crescenzo in my office at Matt.Crescenzo@mail.house.gov.
