Capitol Telling
Rayburn Foyer, Rayburn House Office Building, Capitol Hill

The Atlantic Council and the Telling Project, in partnership with HillVets, present Capitol Telling. A performance by post-9/11 veterans written from their own stories.

Capitol Telling is part of the Atlantic Council's 2015 Take Point Initiative. Three fellows from the initiative, which aims to engage post-9/11 veterans in the foreign policy discourse, will present stories about their military experiences, and reflect on how those experiences shaped their world and policy views in a theater performance format. This performance aims to bridge the civil-military divide and deepen our understanding of the lessons derived from these experiences.

Capitol Telling will be performed in the Rayburn Foyer at the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill. The event will include a reception with complimentary drinks and food.

The performers include:


  • Tom Berry an MA Candidate in Global Affairs at Yale University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs

  • Colin Wood, a Pathways Intern and Researcher at the US Army Corps of Engineers’ Engineer Research and Development Center.

The a reception and performance will then be held in the Foyer of the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill on Friday, October 16 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Food and beverages will be provide.
