Join us tonight for a GREAT program...
"Veteran's Solidarity Work"
featuring Johanna (Hans) Buwalda, the national coordinator of vets
counseling for Vietnam Vets Against War. Hans will speak about working
with returning Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans, many of whom are
struggling with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Hans
coordinates the mobilizing (and training) of other therapists to work
with vets. She's working with WSFPC to mobilize counselors and
therapists to work in this area.

Our own Rev. Bob Sandman will also be speaking tonight. Bob will
share about a courageous UCC congregation in Tallmadge, Ohio that has
mobilized to offer support for returning Iraq and Afghanistan war
vets. WSFPC is hoping to help start a similar initiative among
churches here in the west suburbs.

WHAT: WSFPC Education Forum: "Vets Solidarity Work"
WHEN: Tuesday, March 15th, 7pm
WHERE: Lombard Mennonite Church, 528 E. Madison St, Lombard, IL 60148

This event is FREE and open to the public. WSFPC Holds Education
Forums on the Third Tuesday of each month. They include prayer,
speakers programs, Q & A, snacks and fellowship time.

I hope you can join us,
Dave Martin
