Redefining the American Veteran

By leveraging recent military veterans thriving in unexpected environments, this panel will discuss the public narrative around post-military life and how veterans are viewed by their non-military peers and corporate America. The session's goal is to create opportunities for participants, event attendees and other stakeholders (corporate partners, non-profits, etc.) to continue discussion around this general theme in other forums throughout 2018 and beyond.
