The January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol was a head-on attack on U.S. democracy that exposed our system’s fragility and eroded the American public’s trust in our institutions. The assault left American democracy in a precarious state, but it also inspired an urgency to protect it from future exploitation. Few are better positioned or more seriously committed to safeguarding democracy than the men and women that served our nation in uniform and took an oath to support and defend the Constitution: military veterans.

On September 9, Brookings hosted a panel discussion on the role of this critical population, the national security implications of January 6, the future of American democracy, and the role of veterans and their families in promoting and protecting it on the home front.
