The Steering Committee invites you to join us at the upcoming Veterans for Peace Convention in Chicago this August 10-13. In addition to applying for a workshop, and tabling at the convention, we are planning a mixer for military families on Saturday at the convention. We hope you will join us for lunch so that you can meet and greet the new leadership in MFSO, give input into our organizations future and focus and learn more about MFSO and how MFSO can support you.
This year’s VFP theme is “Education not Militarization”. We are also seeking members who are willing to tell their story about how their loved one was recruited and share their thoughts on what information every parent or family member should know so their loved ones make informed choices about enlisting in the military. Please give us a call if you are interested.
We look forward to visiting with all of you who are able to make the convention this summer.
