This Memorial Day, join Warrior Writers for an evening of storytelling from veteran artists, featuring musicians and spoken word performers.

Warrior Writers' mission is to create a culture that articulates veteran’s experiences, build a collaborative community for artistic expression, and bear witness to war and the full range of military experiences. Warrior Writers provides a creative community for artistic expression amongst veterans and service members. This accepting and understanding community supports veterans through the difficult transition back into civilian life.

We invite you to reflect on the true meaning of Memorial Day, searching beyond the commercialized "celebrations," to remember that many veterans, family members, and friends are thinking of loved ones they've lost. Hearing stories from veterans on this day, and others, is a step towards understanding. Using art as language, we can help bridge the gap between veterans and civilians.

This free performance starts at 8:00pm ET on Zoom.

Veteran artists featured are:

Jessi Atherton

Vainuupo Avegalio

Kevin Basl

Nickie Castro

Omar Columbus

Joy Damiani

Juanita Kirton
