Bristol Community College welcomes all community members to a Veterans Town Hall, on Wednesday, October 25, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the college’s Taunton Center, 2 Hamilton St. All are welcome to attend and snacks will be provided.

Veterans who served in any capacity are invited to stand and speak for up to ten minutes about what it was like to serve their country. The event is non-political and there will be no question-and-answer period. Attendees and non-veterans are encouraged to listen and learn about what it was like to serve this nation.

“Veterans sharing their stories is like a strong thread that weaves our community closer together. It's not just for veterans; it's for everyone in our community, said Peter O'Brien, Retired Marine Corps Master Gunnery Sergeant and DOD SkillBridge Intern, Joseph A. Marshall Veterans Center, Bristol Community College. “When veterans talk about their experiences, it helps all of us understand what they went through, the things they gave up and the values they hold dear.”

Bristol Community College’s Joseph A. Marshall Veterans Center serves as a single point of contact for all Bristol and Veterans Affairs materials, educational benefit certification, academic counseling, essential resources, opportunities for peer connections, and assistance with job preparation and placement services, including veteran-specific job fairs and recruitment activities.
