In war and in peace, what veterans have done in our nation’s name and how they have been treated is an essential part of the American story.

  Panelists Include:
• Kelly Kennedy, Moderator, Project Consulting Producer, award-winning journalist and Army veteran
• Mitchelene BigMan, President and Founder, Native American Women Warriors, and Army veteran
• Shain Brenden, Comedian, writer, actor; Navy veteran; and host of “American Veteran: Keep it Close”
