How Veterans’ Service Abroad Creates a Sense of Responsibility at Home

March 7 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EST


How Veterans’ Service Abroad Creates a Sense of Responsibility at Home

The Hoover Institution, Stanford University invites you to a Town Hall discussion.

About this event

Veterans’ experience abroad imparts a deep empathy for the world around them, with significant implications for the local communities to which they return. How does the post-9/11 veteran experience of combat or service abroad, and the profound relationships built between servicemembers and foreign allies and partners, impact how veterans view their responsibility to others when they return home? More specifically, for this generation of veterans, how do relationships build in Iraq and Afghanistan influence veterans’ advocacy with local and federal policies? How does the experience of the post-9/11 all-volunteer force manifest in democratic ideals at home?

We welcome your participation and encourage you to submit a question about public service and veterans when you register.
