Join Congressional Candidate and Iraq War Veteran Pat Ryan for his talk on “What Went Wrong: A Veteran’s Perspective on Iraq.”

Pat’s exclusive talk will draw on his personal experiences as a military intelligence officer deployed in Iraq for 27 months. He will cover why & how we got involved in the Iraq conflict, what the US did (and what went wrong) while we were there. He’ll illustrate the short and long-term costs of the war - both the human impact and the policy implications for the US - sharing what lessons we can learn and should put into practice moving forward in today’s global security environment.
