General Stanley McChrystal, Former Top Commander In Afghanistan

Jason Moon

Retired General Stanley McChrystal visits New Hampshire this week. We’ll ask him about the situation in Afghanistan, where he was top commander of the international coalition, and get his take on spreading conflicts in the Middle East.  We’ll also find out about his proposal to create a year of national service for young Americans.


  • General Stanley McChrystal: former commander of U.S. and International forces in Afghanistan and the chairman of the leadership council of the Franklin Project on national service at the Aspen Institute.

His talk at UNH Law this afternoon is full, but you can watch it live from the Aspen Institute website.
