VBC Happy Hour & VBC Greatest Generation Live
Every Monday night at 7pm ET (3pm PT), a large and ever-changing group of us gather in a Zoom room for 90 minutes and talk about the rewards and hardships of military service, past and present, and hear a lot of history in the process.
We start with a theme or group of special guests and the conversation takes off. Sometimes it’s anniversary that sparks discussion–the October Missile Crisis, the Tet Offensive, Desert Storm, the Battle of Fallujah. On any given night, you might meet a Holocaust survivor, a retired two-star general, a Coast Guard sailor serving on an heavy icebreaker, or a Red Cross “Donut Dolly” who served in Vietnam.
If it’s International Women’s Day, you’ll meet women veterans from all eras. If it’s the SeaBee Birthday, then SeaBee veterans will be there. And the guests aren’t only veterans. We also love hearing from people who grew up as military brats, Blue Star parents, and, of course, Gold Star Mothers, Fathers, Spouses, and Families. One night a month is reserved for Open Conversation where we provide the platform, and the audience guides the discussion.
Every week the conversation is new, and everyone is welcomed to speak up and join the storytelling. We update our schedule weekly and simulcast our programs to Facebook and YouTube, where they are archived for later viewing. Join us anytime by clicking the links below.
