A Program to Better Understand and Help our Veterans
On Sunday, September 22, the Community Events and Outreach Committee is hosting “A Discussion on Suicide Among Military Veterans,” held in Asbury Center at 7 pm.
Our speaker for the program will be Colonel Thomas Stokes. Colonel Stokes is a decorated veteran who served in Afghanistan earlier this decade. Colonel Stokes is the founder and CEO of a locally based, non-profit organization called Operation Strong Mind that focuses on the mental health challenges veterans face and how to overcome them. Colonel Stokes’ personal experience as a veteran will provide a unique perspective relative to his efforts to assist other veterans.
The program will be preceded by social time with beverages and light desserts.
