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.

- Do "hire veteran" initiatives from private sector companies help positively impact any existing narrative that veterans are a needy population?
- What tangible actions should veterans take to directly impact any negative stigma that exists regarding post-military service transition?
