As part our NHDF’s core mission, we seek to educate citizens on the most recent topics - threats, trainings, leadership changes, combat operations, and lessons learned. To accomplish this, NHDF partners with the Greater Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce-Military Affairs Council and the Colorado Thirty Group to bring recent theater commanders to a public forum to share their experiences ,accomplishments, needs, hopes, and outlook for future operations.
NHDF would like to thank these men and women for sharing their experiences and serving our nation honorably.
