You Don’t Look Like a Veteran

You Don’t Look Like a Veteran

Nearly 29,000 women veterans call Minnesota home. Learn about the faces of this diverse and important segment of the military—their service, their sacrifice, and their needs as they transition to civilian life. Chris Magnusson, Sergeant, U.S. Marine Corps veteran, identifies the challenges women veterans face, from being invisible, to employment and housing, and MST and PTSD.

 

In conjunction with the program, stop by the library to view a portrait exhibit of Minnesota women veterans from all walks of life who have served our nation.  “I Am Not Invisible” is an awareness campaign designed to honor the service and sacrifice of our women veterans, and give our communities an opportunity to show them they are respected and supported. That they are not invisible. The portraits will be displayed throughout the library until October 14.

Program and exhibit presented in partnership with the American Association of University Women (AAUW).
