On this AEI Events Podcast, you’ll hear remarks from Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) on elevating and empowering veterans through VA reform in light of President Trump’s recent executive order “Supporting Our Veterans During Their Transition from Uniformed Services to Civilian Life,” followed by a discussion with experts in veterans’ affairs.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recognizes that it must empower and equip veterans with the resources they need to flourish after service, but it struggles to fulfill this mission. A more integrated approach to veterans’ transition programs, including education and programs focused solely on economic opportunity, can better assist veterans reentering the workforce, fostering individual entrepreneurship while combating the harmful “broken veteran” narrative.
