My name is Chad Freeman, and I am the Programs and Events Coordinator for the VFW Post 1093, out of Ipswich, MA. We are currently putting together our second annual Iraq/Afghanistan Veterans Convention, set for Saturday July 24, 2010. The event brings together various organizations and groups to provide an excellent forum of information for recently returned OIF/OEF veterans in the area.
The event will be held at our VFW Post in Ipswich, MA from about 9am to 5pm, and food/drinks will be provided. Speakers will include Rep. Brad Hill, the Home Base Program, Veterans Upward Bound, OIF/OEF Veterans of MA, Operation Troop Support, the There and Back Again Program, and others.
