UMASS to host Veterans panel
By Jessica Bloustein
Amherst, MA – The University of Massachusetts at Amherst will host veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the Vietnam and Gulf Wars from throughout the Pioneer Valley this evening. They will discuss issues affecting veterans as they return home from combat. The gathering is the first of its kind, and organizers hope it will act as a forum to open the public's eyes to the reality veterans face.
