From on-the-ground reporting on the Taliban’s blitzkrieg through Afghanistan to deep contextual reporting on the racial reckoning taking place in American society, military veterans have shown extraordinary intellect, ethics, and tenacity that will distinguish them among the present generation of journalists. This live panel will introduce attendees to three journalists who have contributed meaningfully to the growing body of work by military veterans in journalism. They will share stories from their reporting experiences and discuss the work they aspire to in the coming years. Marine Veteran and podcast producer Justine Davie will guide this discussion, which will focus on the different phases of each panelist’s career and personal anecdotes about the work they have brought to the public.
