The Second Service Distinguished Speaker Series

The Second Service Distinguished Speaker Series is a forum for prominent veterans in public service to share their experiences with aspiring veteran leaders in an informal environment. These events usually take place once a month in Washington, D.C., and consist of a short address followed by a question and answer period and a light reception.

Whether its at the county level, state level, or serving our country and implementing national policy. I can’t think of a better group of people more qualified to be able to do so then those who have worn the uniform, those who have already made the commitment to put your life on the line to serve our country.
— Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard
