Many veterans pass through this small New England village because it is home to The White River Junction VA Medical Center. White River Junction is also the headquarters of The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS), a world-renowned cartooning school. Until recently, these two very different institutions never crossed paths.
On Wednesday, February 25 from 6-8pm at The White River Junction VA Medical Center in Building 44, Room 103, cartoonists have invited veterans and their families to learn about cartooning and share their stories with the intention of turning those stories into comics.
