American Service: A Conversation with Post-9/11 Veterans

Sponsored by Bank of Texas

What it means to be a military veteran in the United States is being shaped by a new generation of service members. About one-in-five veterans today served on active duty after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Their collective experiences – from deployment to combat to the transition back to civilian life – are markedly different from those who served in previous eras.

Often we hear about the challenges post-9/11 veterans face, yet our heroes continue to serve, lead and thrive in our corporations and communities. Ahead of Veterans Day, join us for an enlightening conversation exploring the unique climate and context of their service and homecoming, how they differ from previous veteran generations and how they continue to serve after the military.
