Wreaths Across America Radio's  roundtable discussions for 2022 focus on Veteran Healing through shared stories of resilience, purpose, and success. This first of five discussions will air on Thursday, March 24, 2022, at 7 PM EDT and can be heard exclusively on Wreaths Across America Radio.

The March RoundTable will focus on Military Caregivers with a special emphasis on Vietnam-era Veterans as we approach National Vietnam War Veterans Day on March 29.

Guest panelists include:

Melissa Comeau, Director of the American Red Cross Military and Veteran Caregiver Network - Melissa is a Marine Corps spouse, director of the American Red Cross’ Military and Veteran Caregiver Network, and a writer. She is known for her book “Sleeping with the War,” published in 2015 by the War Writers’ Campaign. The book offers a family and caregiver perspective on life after combat.

Molly Brooks, CEO, and Founder of Hero’s Bridge - Molly is a registered nurse with over 23 years of experience with specialty certifications in gerontology and hospice and palliative care. Throughout her professional and personal life, she has dedicated herself to caring for others, especially aging veterans.

Guest panelists will be interviewed by Wreaths Across America’s Executive Director Karen Worcester and Director of Military & Veteran Outreach, former United States Army Captain Joe Regan. 

The goal of the roundtable series is to help reduce barriers for veterans by:

  • Supporting generational bonds between service veterans through stories of service and success;
  • Destigmatizing issues faced by veterans and asking for help;
  • Combating inaccurate perceptions of veterans by discussing the diverse experiences, challenges, and success of service members, veterans, and their families; and
  • Connecting veterans with valuable resources.
