Producer Susan Hackley makes poignant point regarding war at USIP presentation last week

Last Thursday at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP), Susan Hackley led a panel discussion on “War Changes Everyone: The Hidden Costs of War at Home and Abroad”. The mother of a Marine who fought in Iraq, Susan Hackley was joined by Iraqi Khitam Alkhaykanee, a program officer at USIP, and Rob DuBois, Navy SEAL who served in Iraq. “We need to put human faces on those affected by war, and that includes the children of Americans who served in Iraq, and the children of Iraq impacted by war,” Hackley commented.
