Fellows and staff members from The Mission Continues are in attendance this week at the 1st Annual Newsweek / The Daily Beast “Hero Summit.” Founder and CEO Eric Greitens served on a panel Thursday morning called “The Urge to Serve,” an exploration of the motives to serve in the military, and why many veterans continue to give back to their communities after returning home.
Fellow Alumni Eli Williamson and Elizabeth Perez-Halperin will appear on Thursday afternoon’s panel “Vets: America’s Secret Economic Weapon.” Both Eli and Elizabeth have started their own initiatives focused on bringing veterans into the civilian workforce.
Additional speakers at the two-day summit include Adm. William McRaven, Medal of Honor recipient Alfred Rascon, journalist Nicholas Kristoff, Bono, former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, and writer Aaron Sorkin. For a full list of speakers, click here.
