In July 2012 more than 120 veterans, spouses, workshop leaders, performers, and veteran service officers met in Richmond, KY for the first-ever Military Experience and the Arts Symposium. Participants came from three different countries and represented every war back to the Korean War. The participants paid nothing for registration , lodging, meals, art supplies, or classes. Some veterans wrote for the first time in years. Others created artwork based on what they were feeling. All left with a sense of community. In the linked article, see what Stars and Stripes had to say about this monumental event.
