Testament: Recovering Identity After War

Welcome to Testament: Recovering Identity after War

About the program

Testament is an innovative initiative that seamlessly merges the profound insights of humanities texts with conversations. Our mission is to create a robust network of testimony, fostering a space for veterans to heal, recover, and rediscover their identities after the ravages of war.

Based in the picturesque state of West Virginia, we are committed to making a lasting impact on the lives of those who have sacrificed so much.



Our Approach

Our program empowers veteran discussion leaders through a comprehensive preparatory program at Marshall University. These leaders then extend their expertise to facilitate engaging discussion groups both in the area and virtually. Together, we delve into humanities texts that explore historical military conflicts, fostering insightful dialogues and reflections.
