On July 27 at 7 p.m. Vose Library in Union will welcome Col. Jack Mosher who will give an illustrated presentation about the 550.2 mile Resiliency Run he performed this spring with Maj. Jay Brock, from Kittery, Maine, to Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C., to advocate health awareness and risk reduction in the nation’s veterans.

Together the two servicemen ran a marathon a day for 21 days stopping along the way at veterans medical centers and historic sites to inspire resiliency and wellness in the nation’s service members, veterans and their families.

Mosher is a combat veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. He is a teacher of humanities, holds two master’s degrees, and is an accomplished writer and musician. He is a national speaker on the subject of health and resiliency, and co-founder of OneLifeWarrior.org. Regarding the resiliency run from Maine to Washington, D.C., Mosher feels that the run is a metaphor signifying that it is possible to get up in the morning and complete a marathon every day as long as you have a buddy to count on, faith, and the support of loved ones.

The resiliency run was designed to raise the national conscience on the issue of veteran health and wellness, with the desired outcome of more veterans securing the services that they need and deserve.

Vose Library is located on the Common in Union. For more information call the library at 785-4733 Tuesdays or Fridays.
