The Arlington County Democratic Committee’s monthly breakfast event on Saturday, Nov. 12 will focus on veterans and their service to the nation.
The event will be held beginning at 9 a.m. at Busboys & Poets in Shirlington, and will feature a number of speakers.
In addition, participants are asked to bring photographs of military members – themselves or family members – and share their stories.
“We let people stand up and say ‘this is my father, this is my mother’ . . . it’s quite moving,” said Charley Conrad, an Arlington Democratic activist who chairs the Democratic Party of Virginia’s Veterans and Military Families Caucus.
