The Civilian—Military Divide
Wednesday, January 14
The Civilian - Military Divide: Bridging The Gap - The Army is at War and America is at Walmart Retired Army Chaplain Scott Fluegel recently retired from active duty after 35 years of service which included deployment to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Korea. He also served as a Family Life chaplain providing Marriage and Family counseling for deployed soldiers and their families. His final assignment brought him to the Rock Island Arsenal with the Joint Munitions Command. According to Chaplain Fluegel, “Over the past decade America's long war in Iraq and Afghanistan has produced a gap of misunderstanding between those who serve in the military and the larger public. We’ll explore the clash of cultures that lies behind this crisis by viewing a film, The Civilian-Military Divide. This film explores the moral, strategic and personal reasons we are all part of the civil-military debate”.
Wednesday January 14 6:30–8:00pm. at Veterans Funeral Care at Trimble Pointe, 701 12th Street, Moline.
