How to Win Without Fighting: Lessons from Army Civil Affairs

What went wrong in Afghanistan? Our August 22 VBC Happy Hour guests, US Army Civil Affairs veterans Gen. Chris Stockel, Col. Chris Holshek, and Col. Hughes Turner, would say we lost the war in Afghanistan not on the battlefield, but in the more complex realm of culture, society, politics, economics, and religion–Civil Affairs. Now, as we confront a new global environment of strategic competition with China, Russia, Iran, and other regional powers, will we make the same mistakes? Join us for this wide-ranging and important conversation. Sponsored by D&D Auto Salvage and Tobacco Free Adagio Health.  Simulcast to Facebook and YouTube.

The mission of the Veterans Breakfast Club is to create communities of listening around veterans and their stories to ensure that this living history will never be forgotten.  We believe that through our work, people will be connected, educated, healed, and inspired.

INTRODUCING THE VETERANS HISTORY PROJECT

Preserving veterans’ stories so that this living history is never forgotten.

We pair passionate VBC volunteers with military veterans for one-on-one oral history interviews over Zoom. If you are a veteran, or you know a veteran, who would be interested in sharing his or her story with us, let us know. If you are someone interested in conducting these interviews, please reach out!
