The Veteran and Military Center and the Office of Disability Services present an exciting and unforgettable event, Dining in the Dark. This unique dinner experience gives guests a first-hand glimpse into the lives of those who are completely blind; a demographic to which approximately 160,000 veterans subscribe.  Creating greater awareness around blindness and the way our veterans navigate their life adjustment to a new environment, participants are served a three course meal while blindfolded. We will provide context and impact to the sensory awareness experience as guests discover the different tastes, smells, and feel of a “blind” meal. During dessert, our keynote speaker Bill Wall, will discuss combat trauma and related injuries for veterans. Mr. Wall recently retired as the head of the Dayton VA Freedom Center.
