NYC Veteran? Two Upcoming Events for Your Calendar

Supporters of the Moving a Nation to Care project are most likely aware of my upcoming book signing (I prefer to think of it as a community gathering) taking place at the NYC-Greenwich Village Barnes & Noble on May 18, 2007 -- the day before Armed Forces Day. Paul Rieckhoff's IAVA are sponsering my stop and Paul himself has offered to introduce me if his schedule allows. What an honor! (I'm really getting excited about the tour, and have a few more stops to pass along to you in a coming post.)

Another NYC event, the 23rd Annual “Hidden Client Conference,” follows on June 18, 2007. I was recently contacted by Joe Bello, an area veterans advocate and member of the group NY Metro Vets, a YahooGroup with about 250 members. He wrote to send me an event flyer and pass along the details, which includes the news that author Trish Wood is one of the keynote speakers. Highly recommend taking the time to make the event if for nothing else but this treat. She is marvelous. Thanks, Joe!
