Program: Dear Veteran: Operation Gratitude Letter Drive
Date: November 11, 2015, Veterans Day
Location: McKissick Museum, Russell House Student Union
Goal of the program: To give participants a chance to learn about the exhibition (at Russell House station) or view the exhibition (at McKissick Museum station); talk with volunteers about military service, deployments, and opinions about GTMO; share their thoughts in written format in comment books; and write letters to active duty military and veterans. We hope visitors will take the opportunity to think about what military service means and has meant in the past, and to create opportunities for visitors to engage with retired and active duty service members.
Programming Summary: Two letter writing stations set up on campus, with a possible third on Main Street in Columbia during the Veteran’s Day Parade. We will have boxes set up for letters to active duty soldiers, new recruits, wounded warriors, and veterans.
