Join MJHS as we highlight unique experiences from Veterans who served in the U.S. Military before the “Don't Ask Don't Tell” policy. MJHS is honored to welcome two courageous Veterans who will share their inspiring stories of fortitude, resourcefulness and self-advocacy as they overcame military prejudice.

During this Pride Month program, we’ll also highlight resources available for LGBTQ+ Veterans and their caregivers, plus ways providers can better support them.

Discussion Topics:
- Ways to support LGBTQ+ Veterans and their caregivers
- Information about the Restoration of Honor Act
- Services available for LGBTQ+ Veterans, including at the Veterans Health Administration (VA)

 

Special Guests: 

  • Petty Officer Second Class La Wanda Mobley, U.S. Navy Veteran
  • Petty Officer Second Class Louis Miller, U.S. Navy Veteran
  • SAGEVets Program Coordinator Arnold Lewis, SAGEUSA

 

Moderated by: Ashton Stewart, MPA, Veteran Liaison and Accredited Veteran Service Officer for MJHS   ashstewa@mjhs.org
