UCLA Chancellor Gene Block and Zocalo Public Square invite you to a half-day forum at UCLA featuring the Honorable Tulsi Gabbard, Representative from Hawaii this Saturday, April 27, 2013
Over 2 million veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are returning home from combat, and while we often read and talk about how the experience of war has changed them both physically and mentally, we don’t discuss how they’re changing the rest of us. Could they reinvigorate our economy—if we started hiring them? Has our healthcare system innovated to heal their devastating injuries? And, what happens when a husband, wife, mother, or father rejoins the family unit? Zócalo and UCLA present a half-day conference to explore how veterans have affected American life today—and what lies ahead for all of us as we transform into a nation at peace in the world.
1:00 p.m. forum
5:15 p.m. reception
De Neve Auditorium, De Neve Plaza, UCLA
