On Tuesday, May 29, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the San Benito County Historical Museum, there will be a community-wide event to unveil and celebrate a book produced by students enrolled in San Benito High School’s Mexican-American History class.

Listen to student authors read from the newly published, Veteran Voices Project: Honoring the Experiences and Perspectives of Local Latino Veterans, and learn about the lives and sacrifices of local Latino veterans. This event is free and open to the public.

The Veteran Voices Project is a two-year project by the San Benito County Arts Council to give voice to local veterans’ stories and to engage veterans, their families and the broader community in the arts.

This project is funded through the Veteran Initiative in the Arts Grant from the California Arts Council with support from Voice of Witness, San Benito High School, Benitolink, American Legion Post 69, VFW Post 9242 and VFW Post 6359.
