How Will the US Recruit and Retain Today for Tomorrow

January 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm CST


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

About this event

Veterans’ generations often have a significant role in determining the future military. The experience of the Vietnam generation of veterans led to the dissolution of the draft and the creation of the All-Volunteer Force. For Vietnam veterans, the All-Volunteer Force would make the US military more professional, more capable, but perhaps more importantly it would mean that the US would have to choose wars carefully. Now, fifty years after the creation of the All-Volunteer Force, the post-9/11 veteran generation will help determine the future of the All-Volunteer military. What role will post-9/11 veterans play in the future of the all-volunteer force? How will post-9/11 veterans’ relationship with local communities influence how the US military recruits the next generation of the all-volunteer force? How will the experiences of this generation influence the US military of the future? We welcome your participation and encourage you to submit a question about public service and veterans when you REGISTER NOW  OR
