Panel and reception aboard USS Midway
The U.S. has been at war for nearly a decade. What are the problems and triumphs soldiers face as thousands return home?
The problems and triumphs U.S. soldiers face as they return from the battlefield are among the topics that will be addressed in the session "When the War Comes Home" on the opening afternoon of the ASNE Convention. The Wednesday session will be held on the hangar deck of the USS Midway Museum and will be followed by a reception sponsored by TV Azteca. Confirmed participants include Ronne Froman, a retired Navy rear admiral, and Eric Greitens, a highly decorated special forces officer who was deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Froman, former commander of Southern California's naval bases (a post known as the "Navy Mayor of San Diego"), is chief executive officer of National Veterans Transition Services Inc.
