Welcome to Returning Soldiers Speak
Returning Soldiers Speak is a venue for soldiers and veterans of all conflicts and wars to tell their stories through the spoken word so we who are left behind can listen to what they have to tell.
We believe it is now that we need to truly listen and validate the voices of the returning soldiers, so we can all begin the journey towards helping them find their way home.
Story has the power to heal.
