Hear our veterans voices

“Average Americans don’t have a clue what military families go through”
—Kenneth Fisher, CEO, Fisher House Foundation

Telling: San Antonio

For many civilians, the realities of war are just images on the local news from far-off lands in upheaval. Most only hear about war from talking heads, not from those who lived it. In Telling: San Antonio, a performance piece organized by playwright Jonathan Wei, veterans and their families are given a voice to share their experiences. The Telling Project has been performed in 15 cities around the country and is coming to San Antonio for the first time this fall. Please join us and tell your friends about this important theatrical event.

Who: KLRN, The Telling Project, Veteran Artist Program, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
What: Telling: San Antonio gives veterans a voice to share their experiences, and includes training to perform monologues during a three-act play.

Why: To connect veterans and their stories with civilians who may not fully understand the military experience.
How: Give local veterans a platform they might not otherwise have to tell their stories about enlistment, boot camp, deployment and coming home.

“I can’t say that doing the Telling Project is something that is easy for me to do. It was painful. I hate remembering that dark stuff. But, I really do believe that telling my story is part of my healing journey from PTSD, depression and alcoholism.”

–Ted, veteran
