Jun 24, 2015

Beyond the Battlefield
Tuesday, July 7, 6:30 - 8:00pm

Grand River Brewery
117 W. Louis Glick Hwy,
Jackson, MI 49201

 Over 70,000 people in Michigan served in the U.S. armed services during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Join Michigan Radio News Director Vincent Duffy as we talk about how those post-9/11 vets are faring. 

We’ll discuss issues like employment and reintegration into civilian life, how the state and federal governments are doing addressing veteran care, and the particular struggles female veterans encounter when returning home. If you're a vet or have a family member who is a veteran, we especially hope you'll join us to share your questions and comments.

Planned panelists will include:

Jeffrey Cassidy - Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency, Army veteran

Eric Fretz - University of Michigan Dept. of Psychology, Navy veteran

Jamaine Atkins - Navy veteran and small business owner

This is a companion event to Michigan Radio’s Beyond the Battlefield series of reports to air July 6-10.

Issues and Ale is an event series from Michigan Radio designed to engage people in conversations about important issues facing Michigan...in an informal atmosphere.
