NATIONAL SECURITY POLICY: WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

December 4, 2014

The National Security Society will launch this important policy conversation with its upcoming panel, "National Security Policy: Where do we go from here?" Our panelists with a military and/or national security background will discuss the future of national security policy and policy solutions geared toward advancing American strength and security as the presidential election cycle begins.

PETE HEGSETH: Pete Hegseth serves as Chief Executive Officer for Concerned Veterans for America and is a Fox News contributor. Prior to joining CVA, Hegseth was Executive Director for Vets for Freedom from 2007-2011, growing the Iraq and Afghanistan veterans organization to over 95,000 members. An infantry Captain in the Army National Guard, Hegseth returned from a deployment to Afghanistan in 2012, where he was the senior counterinsurgency instructor at the Counterinsurgency Training Center in Kabul. Pete previously served in Iraq with the 3rd Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division for their 2005-2006 deployment, serving as an infantry Platoon Leader in Baghdad in 2005, and as a Civil-Military Operations officer in Samarra in 2006. He also served in Guantanamo Bay for a year with his National Guard unit. Pete holds two Bronze Stars and a Combat Infantryman’s Badge for his time in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hegseth appears regularly on Fox News Channel as a contributor—including weekly segments on FOX & Friends and The Kelly File. He has appeared on numerous CNN, MSNBC, The Blaze, and C-SPAN programs.
