Annual Veterans’ Pen Celebration

Annual Veterans Pen Celebration

2020 Celebration

Thank you for joining us Saturday, November 14, 2020  on Zoom

 for our first VIRTUAL celebration of writing as therapy.  Thor Ringler, National Program Manager of the My Life, My Story Project  provided the keynote.

If someone asked you to tell your life story, what would you say?

Since 2013, writers from the “My Life, My Story” project have asked more than 5,000 Veterans at VA hospitals around the United States to tell their life stories. With the Veteran’s permission, those stories go into the Veteran’s medical record so that VA health care providers can read them and get to know their patients better.
