As part of the Dialogues on the Experience of War program, Florida International University hosted War and Healing: A Century of Veterans’ Reintegration. The program consisted of a facilitator training and two, four-week long discussion series. Using works of art, archival documents, oral histories, and literature as a starting point, participants explored themes around the intersections of reintegration, remembering war, health, becoming a veteran, and relationships. In addition to helping veterans reflect on their experiences, the program helped build the capacity within the local community to serve veterans, both now and in the future.
