Event description

Description

America’s Military and Its Veterans

America’s military provides for our common defense and plays a significant role in our society. However, for more than 40 years, this military has comprised volunteers who represent an increasingly narrow and insular slice of America. Has it always been this way? Who serves when not all serve? What are the consequences of this civil-military divide for the military, for veterans, and for society?

Phillip Carter is a former Army officer and Iraq veteran who leads the Military, Veterans and Society research program at the Center for a New American Security in Washington, DC. He also teaches law as an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, and practices as of counsel with the law firm Fluet Huber + Hoang PLLC. Carter writes frequently on national security issues for Slate, The Washington Post, and other publications.
