Wounded Warriors focus of Charlottesville speaker

An Iraq combat veteran will speak next month in Charlottesville on the challenges faced by Wounded Warriors.

Ben Shaw, a former Marine and currently a veteran peer specialist for the Virginia Wounded Warrior Program, will headline the inaugural event in the Power of Ten community-speaker series at the Region Ten Community Services Board, 504 Lynchburg Road, Charlottesville, on Tuesday, March 22, at 6 p.m.

Shaw’s talk will focus on the specific challenges facing his generation of veterans, the struggle to transition to civilian life, isolation, and veteran suicide rates, drawing from his own experiences as a three-tour Marine and two tours as a civilian combat journalist.

The event is free of charge and there is free parking to the side of the building.
