Sunday, November 11, 2012, will be memorable for Philadelphia and the surrounding communities. Come to the National Constitution Center to recognize the sacrifice of those lost in the wars abroad and learn more about the new book Tom Brokaw is calling a "must read for all Americans." The book is a LA Times Best Seller and was recently selected to be on the Chief of Naval Operations' reading list for 2013.
Co-editor Josh Welle and co-author Pat McConnell will explain how the Navy and Marine Corps reacted after 9/11 and will provide perspectives of ten years at war. Jeff Speakman, an active-duty Marine pilot will discuss the impact of war on soldiers. The discussion also touches on the leadership attributes of veterans and their applicability both in and out of uniform.
