USIP’s new signature event series “First in War, First in Peace” pays tribute to George Washington, who set the precedent of American veterans advancing peacebuilding after leaving military service. The program also honors Congressional military veterans and veteran groups who were critical stakeholders in the establishment of USIP in 1984 and have continued to guide the Institute’s work throughout its nearly 40-year history.
