We are honored to present artist Robert Bellows of Warrior Storyfield as our keynote speaker. Robert is working with a diverse group of veterans and civilians to create a large-scale art project that addresses the question, “What does it take for a veteran to come home?” Their shared experiences, camaraderie, and even conflicts have inspired the creation of three meaningful sculptures: a dragon, a phoenix, and the space in between. This extraordinary story holds deep significance for veterans and others alike. Find out more.

More than 50+ veteran service organizations will staff information tables at this event, offering a one-stop shop for services, clubs, and resources.

Complimentary dinner is included for pre-registered attendees.

Great things happen at the summit because veterans, their family members, and stakeholders get together to share valuable information and support one another. The exhibitors provide a wide array of services and resources. The speakers and presenters bring fresh insights, expertise, and inspiration. The Summit is a great place to meet old friends, make new friends, and learn about all of the resources and opportunities available to veterans.
