Event description

Description

The Friends of General Brown, MD are pleased to invite you to "A Veterans Day Celebration at Historic Pohick Church."

Revolutionary War Physician General William Brown, MD served under General Washington and was in charge of hospitals between the Hudson and Potomac Rivers. He was a visionary in terms of providing standardized care to the troops.

The centerpiece for the day will take place at 11 AM. In collaboration with the State of Virginia Department of Historic Resources, we will unveil and dedicate a Virginia historical highway marker in honor of General Brown, MD. The US Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps plans to attend. There is no charge for this event.

Other scheduled events which require a separate registration:

At 9 AM we will sponsor a keynote address entited, "Life after Military Combat: Finding a Place of Peace." The address will be delivered by Professor David Hufford, PhD of the Penn State College of Medicine. He has conducted extensive research on the effects of trauma on emotional health. There are now free tickets available for this event and no need to pay a fee. Please register so we can plan accordingly.

At 10:15 AM there will also be a Colonial Prayer Service in Historic Pohick Church with organ prelude and postlude. There is no charge for this event.
