PubliCalendar Pick: Bob Woodruff "Are We Serving Our Veterans?"

By Kyle Fuller July 15, 2011

Almost immediately after being named co-anchor of ABC's World News Tonight in January 2006, Bob Woodruff was seriously injured in a roadside bombing in Iraq.

Woodruff’s experience as a survivor of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and as a reporter with our men and women overseas leads him to ask:  With so many soldiers returning home to face life-altering healthcare and mental health issues, a high unemployment rate and even homelessness, are we doing all we can to serve our nation’s veterans and their families?

There's a panel discussion after his talk. Panelists include: Mary Forbes (Assistant Director for Veterans Services, WA Dept. of Vets); Audrey Hudgins (Seattle U. political sci professor and adviser to student-veterans); Timm Lovitt (Seattle U. student and Vet Corps consultant); and Sheila Sebron (member of the Committee to End Homelessness in King County).

This event is a great opportunity to learn more about how we can better serve those who fight for our freedom. To buy tickets, click here.

Seattle Town Hall, July 15, 7-9pm, $5
