As U.S. Forces’ presence in Afghanistan is reduced, and the military is drawing-down, increasing numbers of talented veterans and their families are returning to communities across the nation—communities that sorely need the skills, creativity and leadership that our Veterans have to offer.
This Forum brings together a panel of national and local leaders, veterans and civilians, to discuss efforts underway across communities and sectors to reintegrate and engage veterans in the life—and work—of our communities.
