The Foxhole Stories

Our Future

Starting a Theater Company

 

Our Future Goal

3% of the entire nation serves. We receive life-long benefits and a sense of pride from our duty, yet 22 of us commit suicide everyday. The smallest minority and we're becoming smaller everyday. We know that plays can only do so much for the veteran community but a theater company could be the beginning of something...

"BIG THINGS HAVE SMALL BEGINNINGS"

One of our cornerstone goals with The Foxhole Stories is to make a professional theater company for vets, by vets. Some of the things we hope to provide our community is a drama therapy class free to all veterans, promoting military themed new and classical works for the stage, and fostering the "voices" of young veteran-artists.
