ST. LOUIS — A former U.S. Navy Seal officer will discuss the importance of public service in a lecture later this month at Washington University in St. Louis.
Eric Greitens co-founded The Mission Continues, which empowers wounded and disabled veterans to begin new lives in public service.
His lecture, "Inspiring Leadership in Challenging Times," is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on March 30 at Brown Hall.
Donated items for military care packages will be accepted through March 30. Volunteers at the university will assemble them to give to military personnel.
After Greitens was injured in Iraq and retired from active duty, he settled in St. Louis and co-founded The Mission Continues. In 2008, he received the President's Volunteer Service Award for his work with wounded and disabled veterans.
