Hello!

I am assembling a panel for the Society for Military History's Annual Meeting in Ottawa in April 2016, and I need another panelist.  The theme of the panel is the ways in which the YMCA or YWCA supported various people groups affected by war around the world (does not necessarily have to relate to involvement with soldiers per se) and/or the collaboration and conflict with wartime governments that occurred as a part of its involvement in wartime.
