TEDTalks Wes Moore

Wes Moore

Jan 2014

Moore, an Army paratrooper and captain, recounts the difficulties he experienced upon returning from Afghanistan to the United States. He talks to his audience about how to speak to veterans about their experiences abroad and encourages them to ask veterans for their stories and to take the time to listen to what they have to say.

We signed up because we love this country we represent. We signed up because we believe in the idea and we believe in the people to our left and to our right. And the only thing we then ask is that “thank you for your service” needs to be more than just a quote break, that “thank you for your service” means honestly digging in to the people who have stepped up simply because they were asked to.
