Engage Conversation: Portraits of Courage with President Bush

May 22, 2017
6:30 p.m.

President George W. Bush has dedicated much of his post-presidency to honoring our nation’s post - 9/11 veterans and helping them make a smooth transition to civilian life, including addressing the invisible wounds of war. Through the Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative, President Bush has assembled a special group of wounded warriors that are especially close to his heart, Team 43.

President Bush has combined his appreciation for our veterans with his favorite hobby – painting. He joined us to speak about his book Portraits of Courage, chatting alongside some of the subjects of his paintings, members of Team 43.
