Burlington, Vermont to Hold Special Veterans’ Town Hall

Burlington, Vermont — On Sunday, November 5th, a special town hall event for veterans and members of the community will take place at Burlington’s Contois Auditorium. The event, inspired by author Sebastian Junger, is a community forum aiming to establish a greater understanding between local veterans and the friends and neighbors they fought for.

In the tradition of warrior storytelling, veterans are invited to describe the pride, grief, rage, or quiet appreciation of life that the war bestowed upon them. Veterans are invited to share what their service means to them through a story, summary of service, message, letter home, excerpt from a war journal, or even the story behind a photograph. Non-veterans are invited to attend, to listen, and to learn.

The Town Hall will begin at 1pm at Contois Auditorium in Burlington’s City Hall. Seating is first come, first served. If you would like to attend and/or receive event updates, please RSVP at If you are a veteran and would like to speak, you can mark that preference when you register.
