It has been one year since we launched Defense One, Atlantic Media’s newest brand providing daily news, analysis and bold ideas on the future of national security. What does the future hold for so many of those who already have served in uniform is a lifetime as an American veteran – and all the blessings and complications that come with that honor? We’re excited to team up with Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, the nation’s largest organization serving veterans of those wars, to discuss today’s issues challenging the nation’s newest “Greatest Generation.”
A special event we’re calling “The New Battleground: Veterans” will feature top leaders and experts on the most urgent issues facing veterans today, including reforming the embattled Department of Veterans Affairs, combating suicide, bridging the gap between the military and the public, and the struggle to serve in the civilian workforce once out of uniform.
The event will be held on July 30 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
