Public Gratitude and Perpetual Warfare
Presented by Evan Reibsome, veteran and academic from Lehigh University.
Join us for a discussion about the patriotic practice known as the “Thank You for Your Service” phenomenon.
Drawing from a wide range of material – literature, popular culture, and his own military service – Reibsome will examine this expression of gratitude and reveal how blindly thanking military service members may paradoxically harm our men and women in uniform and inadvertently contribute to a state of perpetual warfare in the 21st century.
