Howard Schultz and Rajiv Chandrasekaran with James Collins
Bridging the Gap Between Veterans, Civilians

Howard-Scultz[box]This event is presented offsite at Seattle University’s Pigott Auditorium, 1016 E. Marion St. Seattle, WA 98122.[/box]

Unlike decades past, less than 1% of Americans have served in military conflicts over the past decade and according to Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz, this is creating a gap between veterans, active-duty servicemembers, and regular civilians. For Love of Country — co-written with The Washington Post’s Rajiv Chandrasekaran — celebrates the valor, sacrifice, and dedication of the veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. Inspired to tell this story after visiting Lewis-McChord and other bases, Schultz and Chandrasekaran will explore the impact servicemembers have both on, and off, the battlefield. According to Schultz, with more than 600,000 veterans in Washington state –with the majority from recent conflicts — reconnecting with this generation of the military is now more important than ever for an integrated country.

Schultz and Chandrasekaran appeared in conversation with Major General James Collins, who retired from Fort Lewis in 2006.
