11/11/19: Veterans Day; Admiral Stavridis On 'Sailing True North'; Cole Pepper

Nov 11, 2019

It’s Veterans Day, an important day of remembrance to honor all those in this country who have served and sacrificed in the armed forces.

Two new local initiatives – The Fire Watch and Mission United – are now underway to provide support to our large veteran community. They’re focused on helping vets with everything from job searches and housing support, to preventing suicide.

We discussed them with veterans' legal advocate Christopher Dempsey and attorney Dan Bean, both of whom are veterans themselves. Dan Bean also serves on WJCT's board of directors. 

Ret. Admiral James Stavridis

Local retired Admiral James Stavridis is the former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO. This month, he’s out with a new book, Sailing True North: Ten Admirals and the Voyage of Character.
