Late last year, we posted about a new student group Alex Ketchum ’12 was seeking to start: a support group for family, friends, and significant others of military personnel. With help from Shannon Nelson ’14, that group is holding its meeting tomorrow (Wednesday) on the black couches in Usdan, right in the thrust of the Usdan dinnertime stampede hour special:
We are having our first meeting! This Wednesday at 6 PM on the black couches in Usdan!
Do you have friends, family, and/or significant others in the military and feel like you need a space to discuss your personal experiences? Are you looking for a supportive space to share your feelings and not feel isolated?
This group is not just for people connected to the U.S. military, but for friends, family, and lovers of military personnel around the world. While experiences from place to place may be different, many of the feelings of isolation, loss, and distance can create a commonality. Furthermore, this is not a political group. While it is very important to have spaces to discuss the politics, morals, and economics of the military, this is not that space. We are a support group, seeking to work together and help one another. If you are interested, please email either Alex Ketchum ’12 (aketchum@wes) or Shannon Nelson ’14 (senelson@wes).
Date: Wednesday, Feb. 1
Time: 6 pm – 7:30 pm
Place: The Black Couches of the Usdan University Center
I would be more likely to attend if this were in a less public place.
