Students meet the last survivor of the legendary Doolittle Raid on Tokyo, Col. Richard E. Cole, at the AVC’s Annual Veterans Conference, prior to Col. Cole’s passing in 2019.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the American Veterans Center and the World War II Veterans Committee’s 23rd Annual Conference continued in 2020 in the form of a series of digital conversations commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II.

Dubbed ‘Conversations with Our Greatest Generation,’ the conversations streamed bi-weekly throughout the fall, and brought together some of the great living heroes of the war, notable moderators, and students from military academies & ROTC programs.

Though we were unable to gather together in person this year, the mission to connect our heroes and leaders of yesterday to those future leaders of tomorrow continues, and we thank all who took part in this powerful series of programs.

To learn more about the Conference, call 703-302-1012 ext. 227 or e-mail the AVC.
