PRESENTATION #2, Advocating for a Vulnerable Population via City Council Directions:
Your vulnerable population assigned to you is: Veteran couple in mid-thirties. 4 tours in Iraq, both injured in combat. The husband lost his left leg below the knee and has a prosthetic. The wife had a minor gunshot wound to the shoulder but has made a full recovery. Both suffer from PTSD and depend on medication.
You are speaking before your local city council regarding a problem with your vulnerable population (veteran couple) in your community and seeking funding for your organization that you represent to address the issue. Speakers at city council meetings are given 5 minutes maximum to present, so the same will apply to the group. It is advisable to each pick a point to discuss and practice.

After 5 minutes of speaking, a brief reflection of the assignment to demonstrate what you have learned and any future needed research.
