Red Badge Project’s Women Veterans Reading
Please join us for a reading to honor women veterans of the Red Badge program, and witness their stories.
Co-founded in 2012 by former Army Captain Evan Bailey and Tom Skerritt (movie and television star who also happens to be an Air Force veteran), the Red Badge Project supports Wounded Warriors in the journey to reconstruct their individual sense of purpose, understanding of self-worth, and place in community, as they discover and give voice to their unique stories.
