The Walrus Talks at Residence: Veteran Identities

Going over and above the headlines to have an understanding of veterans’ experiences

What does it necessarily mean to be a veteran now? Nationally and individually, we have preconceived tips and anticipations of what a veteran need to be. The real lived experience of being a veteran is wide and shifting, and particular narratives are critical when contemplating how Canada’s military services culture moves ahead.

Through steps these as voting and shelling out taxes, all Canadians affect the form of our armed forces. As customers of our communities serve to fight towards regional wildfires or are associated in international conflict, how are we advancing transparency, dignity, and therapeutic in these evolving programs?

The Walrus Talks at House: Veteran Identities is a unusual possibility to listen to right from veterans as they share strong insights and think about advanced thoughts on concepts of leadership, belonging, vulnerability, and energy. Join us for this crucial and timely conversation.
