Stories from Wartime
Every spring semester for the past 24 years, Regis University’s Center for the Study of War Experience has led a public history series, "Stories from Wartime," featuring veterans and civilians sharing their wartime experiences. The moderated panels have represented WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. For the second year, the Center will partner with the Arvada Center to bring its panels to a larger public audience.
These events are free and open to the public. If you wish to attend, please register in advance by placing a free general admisison ticket in your cart and completing the checkout process using the links below.
