Lessons From the Frontline Generation

Join us for a special live event featuring Marjorie K. Eastman, award-winning author,
distinguished keynote speaker, advocate and US Army veteran.

Thursday, Nov. 11 | 1 p.m. ET

On Veteran’s Day, we come together to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. Its history goes back to the end of World War I.

These acts of courage, compassion and unity have prevailed through a new generation of veterans – to become a lasting legacy.

Lessons From the Frontline Generation will encourage you today – regardless of whatever challenge you may face – to live with purpose, live for each other and lead.

In 2001, Eastman was in her early 20s, working, paying off school loans and wondering what she was going to do to make her life count. Then 9/11 happened. And as our nation grappled with unimaginable grief, anger and sadness, her purpose became clear.

Eastman enlisted and served as a US Army intelligence officer and commander. Her 10 years of post-9/11 military service included two combat deployments, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Her final duty was to command over 100 soldiers in Afghanistan to successfully fulfill their mission and safely return home.

She was ranked the No. 1 Military Intelligence Company Commander in Eastern Afghanistan for the deployment cycle of 2009-2010, awarded the Bronze Star for meritorious service as a combat commander and received the Combat Action Badge.

Eastman’s award-winning book, The Frontline Generation: How We Served Post 9/11, began as a personal memoir for her son as he battled and beat cancer as a baby. It became the first book to define post-9/11 service and leadership.

The frontline is not a place. It is us. It is the person to your left and to your right, and this is in combat and here at home. Marjorie K. Eastman The Frontline Generation: How We Served Post 9/11
