I just wanted to pass along this media roundtable invitation from We The Veterans for Monday, May 22.
We may do more of this on a more formal basis in the future by creating a daybook for the homepage, but for now I wanted to share this.
We are hoping to be more proactive and as always, please feel free to reach out to me with suggestions, complaints and brilliant ideas.
Including whether you want more, less or none of these announcements.
I’m writing to invite you to a quick media availability on Monday, May 22, to meet Ellen Gustafson, the co-Executive Director of We The Veterans, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization created by veterans and military family members, united for democracy and committed to building a more perfect union. The mission of WTV is threefold:
- To promote patriotic civic engagement within the veteran community
- To mitigate mis/dis/mal-information targeting veterans
- To help prevent extremist violence
Next week, Tuesday, RAND will release a study on veterans and extremism, and we’d be happy to discuss what we’ve been observing in the veteran community and what we have been doing and will be doing in the future on these important issues.
Please RSVP by responding to this email or pass to whomever is covering extremism at your organization.

When: Monday 5/22 at 1130
