Veterans Reaching Veterans
Alliance Veterans is a place where veterans are welcome to talk, share and listen to others who have walked in their shoes. All veterans of each branch of the military, regardless of gender, or their widows or widowers, are welcome.
Alliance Veterans meets the third Monday evening of each month at 7:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall at Murrysville Alliance Church. Meetings last approximately an hour and a half, and all discussions are shared and held in confidence.
