A Discussion with Governor Tom Ridge

HVAO’s Washington, DC chapter cordially invites you to a special discussion with Governor Tom Ridge on Wednesday, June 20th. Governor Ridge will discuss both current national security topics and his thoughts on navigating a public sector career. 


Governor Ridge graduated with honors from Harvard College in 1967, and went on to serve in the infantry in Vietnam, earning a Bronze Star for Valor. After earning his law degree, he went into private practice before being elected to Congress in 1982. He later served as the Governor of Pennsylvania from 1995 to 2001, and, in 2003, became the first U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security.
