Everyone welcome at Dispatch event Saturday

We're fortunate retired Army Maj. John Ready has agreed to conduct a session this Saturday in our new Community Media Lab.
You may have seen Ready in the pages of The Dispatch discussing his new project Veteran Images, in which he's attempting to documet the experiences of as many local veterans as he can.
It's a worthwhile project, in the same vein, but much more extensive of our own long-running "War Stories" series.

But that's not all Ready's prepared to talk about. He also plans to talk about his experiences in Iraq, where they called him "Uncle Sugar," because of his Army job: handing out cash (mostly hundred-dollar bills seized from Saddam) to Iraqi contractors doing work helping rebuild the country.

We hold these events at 11 a.m. and run until noon or so. The theory is that we won't take up people's whole day. Come and learn something. It's free and we'll also have free coffee, tea and doughnuts.

Maj. John Ready (Ret.)
11 a.m. - Noon Saturday Aug. 20
