This presentation presentation will provide attendees with tools to create a safe emotional environment for our Vietnam veterans so that they can share their stories, heal, and “come home” at last! Attendees will also learn about the value of ceremonies to heal the unmourned loss and unforgiven guilt that sometimes lingers in war’s aftermath plus how families were and continued to be affected by the afternmath of this war. Vietnam veterans’ poems are used to provide an enlightened perspective on the special needs of our aging Vietnam veterans, including women veterans. Will create Vietnam veteran awareness in our community. Pinning ceremony will occur for Vietnam veterans (and any veterans attending) and we need the Vietnam 50th commemorative pins for Vietnam veterans. Very important to them. Thank you.
