Veterans Speaker & Advocacy Bureau

The LI Veterans For Peace Chapter 138 has formed a Veterans Speaker & Advocacy Bureau to provide speakers to Long Island educators "who recognize the importance and educational value of augmenting their history, social studies, literature, etc. curricula with relevant oral histories of those who have personally experienced war."

Their aim is to inform students of the realities of war, it is not a political agenda.

For more information, please call 631-875-8647.
