Telling one’s personal story can be transformative … The Veterans Writing Project draws on that concept by offering free writing seminars to Military members and their families. We hear an overview of the program from two instructors: Dario DiBattista, a marine veteran and retired naval officer Jerri Bell. Then we meet former army officer Matt Condon, a student in the program who shares some of his work.
