Record Sponsorship for Defense Forum Washington
The United Services Automobile Association took the lead in sponsoring Defense Forum Washington 2010 on 10 September, a joint collaboration between the Naval Institute and the Military Officers Association of America. “A New Normal: How Is the War within Transforming Our Force and Families?” featured participants including Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) and Army Chief of Staff General George W. Casey and his wife Sheila. In her keynote address, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Assistant Secretary Tammy Duckworth tackled the issue from her personal perspective as a wounded warrior, addressing the doubts and challenges she faced while developing her own “new normal.” Panels focused on the recovery and reintegration of the nation’s wounded veterans, including those with unseen mental trauma, and on the challenges that lie ahead for them and their families.
