Unity through Diversity & Inclusion: It Begins with All of Us

The holistic strategy to reintegrate our veterans into the civil world. The United States has officially declared an end to its military operations in Afghanistan. After the longest war in American history, US soldiers are now returning to civilian life after 20 years in Afghanistan. The state of Illinois is expecting nearly 900 Afghan refugees very soon with additional hundreds more coming later. How do we best prepare for the impact of this withdrawal? The reintegration of our veterans, the welcoming of the refugees and the necessary aftermath initiatives. It will require a lot more work - diplomatic, military, and social - to navigate this new chapter in a holistic way including everyone in the debate either as an ally or champion.
