Spotlight Series: The Military and the Role of Citizen Soldier

Free

Featuring: Dr. David Hamlar, Brig. Gen. recently retired Assistant Adjutant General – Air, Minnesota National Guard. Moderated by Kevin Lindsey, Minnesota Humanities Center.

In-person and Online
FREE and Open to the Public (Registration Requested)

As we honor October as Veterans’ Voices Month in Minnesota, it is an opportunity to explore the role of civilian and military leadership with Brigadier General David D. Hamlar Jr. The United States has a huge, well-funded military, but at the highest levels, it is overseen by civilians. How effective has our country been in sustaining this balance between civilian and military views? What might each group have to learn from the other? Among the many divisions that plague our country today, is this one of them?
