Any interaction with Veterans is mostly a good thing. For us. For them.

Social interaction is so important for so many veterans who come back from service as changed men and women.

And today is a chance for all veterans from all branches and all eras to get together and socialize and interact with each other, and with civilians.

Today is the monthly Coffee with Veterans event, held the 3rd Wednesday of the month taking place at House in the Woods in Lee.

The coffee and baked goods are free.

The time together with other veterans is precious. Priceless. And most important.

Together we heal

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
