WHAT: Valparaiso University will host several events on campus to commemorate Veterans Day.
The Valpo Military and Veterans Programs will partner with Porter Starke and Pines Village Retirement Community to present “Transforming Our Communities to Heal Our Veterans,” a free community event open to veterans, veteran families, students, staff, administrators, community leaders and politicians. Edward Tick, Ph.D., will speak on the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on veterans, veteran families and the community. Tick co-founded and is the executive director of Soldier’s Heart, a program dedicated to helping veterans after they return from service. As a psychotherapist, he has worked with veterans since the 1970s to aid in their healing process and treat PTSD.
