* Sons of the American Revolution (SAR): A speaker will give a lecture on "Soldiers in the American Revolution."

* Sons of Union Veterans (SUV): A descendant of a Naval Congressional Medal of Honor recipient will give a presentation on his ancestor's life, valor, and the challenges he faced during his term of duty with the US Navy.

* United Veterans Council (UVC): Representative members will discuss their wartime experiences, with a focus on the Vietnam War.  Veterans in the audience will also be invited to reflect on their wartime remembrances.
