Voices of Student Veterans

 Consider attending the play Voices of Student Veterans this Sunday afternoon. http://finearts.uky.edu/theatre/voices  & https://www.facebook.com/VoicesofStudentVeterans .

The play is without doubt your best opportunity to gain understanding into the challenges facing our student veterans.  The script is pulled directly from our Combat to Kentucky oral history interviews http://www.nunncenter.org/c2ky/ .   You will be moved by these young actors as they tell 5 compelling stories of service, sacrifice and transition to the classroom.

Please help me spread the word.  I hope to see you there.

Best,

Tony
