Memorial Day: Honoring American Heroes

May 20, 2021

Many American flags flapping in the wind together on a national holiday

To honor Memorial Day and Veterans Day this year, let’s listen closely to veterans whose service has led them to develop powerful messages that illuminate the American experience. These renowned speakers share powerful lessons that speak to a wide range of topics rooted in American culture, from corporate leadership and diversity & inclusion to healthcare and societal conflict.

WWSG honors the memory of U.S. Armed Forces members who are no longer with us, especially in recognizing that today’s veterans are an indication of the potential influence those who lost their lives during their times of service would have had.
