When members of the US military are lonely, uncertain of their legal rights or ask whether they can in fact march into war, where do they turn? One recourse – the Military Counseling Network (MCN) based in several locations in Germany.

MCN representatives MJ Sharp and Tim Huber will share stories from working with U.S. service members 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20, in Lehman Auditorium at EMU.

The duo will also give an informal presentation and answer questions 9 p.m. that evening at the Common Grounds Coffeehouse in the University Commons.

MCN is a non-military network of organizations that provides free counseling service those soldiers who are questioning going to war or want to know more about military discharges and regulations.

The group has counselors located in different regions throughout Germany who respond to questions, provide guidance and supply legal information.

Director/Head Counselor Michael Sharp has been working at MCN since the summer of 2005 and brings an interest in law and experience with web design to the office. He is a 2005 EMU graduate.

Office Manager/Counselor Tim Huber started at MCN in July of 2006 after working as a journalist at a daily newspaper in Kansas. He graduated from Tabor College, Hillsboro, Kan., in 2004 with a major in communications.

The program is open to everyone at no admission charge.
