A nationwide discussion program open to all

In Talking Service, small groups under the guidance of skilled facilitators get together to reflect on short, powerful writings about military service by some of the world’s greatest authors. Participants are encouraged to share their insights, build on each other’s comments, and challenge their assumptions through lively, informal conversations centered on the anthology Standing Down: From Warrior to Civilian, published by the Great Books Foundation.

We invite you to explore the Talking Service website to find out more about the program and how you can get involved.

Talking Service is supported by generous grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
