Veterans Day – Monday, November 11th – Third Annual Veterans Town Hall

Immediately following the parade at Barnstable Town Hall, 2ndFloor Hearing Room,  367 Main Street, Hyannis, MA.  The Veterans Town Hall features Ten Minute Testimonies of Combat Veterans: Veterans Tell the Community What It Felt Like to Go to War.  Please join this community event hosted by the Town of Barnstable and the Cape & Islands Veterans Outreach Center: an opportunity to listen respectfully and demonstrate your interest genuinely.  This is a solemn and non-political event. There is no question and answer period; no debate on the merits or justifications of war; no recrimination or accusations.  This event’s concept was created by Sebastian Junger, Journalist, Author and Veterans Advocate and supported by Congressman Seth Moulton, former Marine and Iraq Veteran.  The Hyannis Elks will be providing food for this event.
