“Welcome Home Hero: You’re Not Alone”

“Welcome Home Hero: You’re Not Alone”

Greetings! I’m writing to tell you about my upcoming symposium for veterans and their families. “Welcome Home Hero: You’re Not Alone” will take place on Friday, June 14th at the West Regional Center of Community College of Philadelphia at 4725 Chestnut Street. The event will take place between 8am - 1pm.

I believe that we have a duty to honor all of our veterans, especially the new generation that is returning from Afghanistan, Iraq, and other places around the world. I’m saddened by the fact that our veterans do not always receive the support they deserve, especially from government agencies. Our veterans deserve so much more. This event is my attempt to provide services to these brave individuals and thank them for their sacrifices on behalf of our country.

Workshops • Resource Fair • One on One Counseling & Much More!

Here are just some of the reasons to attend this important event:
