    Al-Qaeda Today

    Eight years after the killing of Osama bin Laden, the State Department recently declared al-Qaeda to be as great a threat to the U.S. as it has ever been. At the same time, the administration has confirmed that Hamza bin Laden, a potential successor to his father, was killed in an airstrike, and recent intelligence suggests that al-Qaeda’s current leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, may have serious health complications. As a complement to the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s upcoming exhibition on the hunt for bin Laden, al-Qaeda experts Peter Bergen, Bruce Hoffman, Mary Galligan and Mark Stout who advised the Museum in the creation of the exhibition, discuss the future of this terrorist group and the wider jihadist movement.

    From Marine to Entrepreneur - Coming Home, Gearing Up

    NYC Startup Academy presents From Marine to Entrepreneur - Coming Home, Gearing Up with Marine Corps Sgt. (Ret.) Ryan Loya on November 20, 6-8pm. 

    As is widely reported, the transition back to civilian life can be challenging, and support systems for veterans are not always as advertised. On the other hand, many veterans have made successful transitions back into the private sector and are thriving. Loya will discuss his journey from service to civilian life and present a soldier’s perspective on how the civilian community supports our veterans – and how we could do better.

    Serving Aging Veterans

    More than half of the veterans who die by suicide are over 50 years old. Over 42% of NYC Veterans are age 55 and older, and many face challenges in health, memory, independence or loss of loved ones that may lead to distress or isolation. Learn how you might change a life or even save one.

    You will gain valuable insight into:

    - Why aging veterans are at greater risk that their civilian counterparts

    - What to listen for in order to assess their mental health, and

    - How to engage and refer aging veterans in need to an appropriate behavioral health partner.

    Clear up some myths and misunderstandings about services available to aging veterans, with time for Q&A.
