Join us as we commemorate the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 with the highly anticipated release of “The Twenty-Year War,” a photo book that details the experiences of 71 Veterans of the Global War on Terror. Connect with the authors, photographer, and Veterans featured in this breathtaking photo journal during a special program as we dive into the narratives of American service members fighting in a conflict that has spanned the past two decades. The Veterans featured in “The Twenty-Year War” open up about their call to service, the sobering realities of combat, their transition post-military, and what it’s like to find their mission again — in life. Books will be available for purchase and authors will sign before and after our panel discussion. Capacity is limited — reserve your tickets now.

About the Book

This book explores the experiences of American service members fighting in a conflict that has spanned two decades. “The Twenty-Year War” explores the challenge Veterans face reintegrating into a society where less than one percent of the American populace has served.

“The Twenty-Year War” is an unflinching look at what it means to serve both in uniform and out. The portraits are explosive, telling and gritty looks at the authentic life of an American service member. 

The Veterans featured in “The Twenty-Year War” open up about their call to service, the sobering reality of combat, their transition post-military, and what it’s like to find their mission again. 

This book shares 71 unique Veteran stories spanning the 20-year Global War on Terror. These stories are not often told and include experiences of fathers and sons, sisters, brothers, and husbands and wives who served together. “The Twenty-Year War” is a triumph of the American Veteran’s spirit and determination.
