The founder of Veteran Entertainment Television (VET Tv) will team up with the network’s chief executive officer to guide discussions and develop the leaders of a national veterans nonprofit during the 2023 Irreverent Warriors National Leadership Conference here Jan. 20-22.

The conference will feature guest speakers and panelists from the military, academia, and the private sector, and will provide professional development and best practices to more than 140 Irreverent Warriors leaders from across the country.

Confirmed attendees include The Honorable Patrick J. Murphy, the 32nd Undersecretary of the U.S. Army and the first veteran of the Iraq War elected to Congress; Dr. Craig Bryan, a board-certified clinical psychologist, who is nationally-recognized for his research in suicide prevention; Sgt.

“VET Tv and Irreverent Warriors have mutually supporting missions,” said Hoover. “This conference is an incredible opportunity to bring experts in suicide prevention, senior government officials, and members of our national leadership together to learn from each other and grow as an organization.”
