NEW YORK, April 7, 2017 – Matthew Murawski an Associate in Fixed Income Sales at Drexel Hamilton, LLC and veteran of the US Army, will speak on a panel at the Yale-West Point Civ-Mil Service Symposium on April 21-22, 2017 at the U.S. Military Academy, West Point New York. The Symposium is a joint initiative between Yale and the US Military Academy at West Point.
Murawski served as an Infantry Officer in the US Army from 2006 to 2013. After graduating from US Army Airborne and US Army Ranger Schools, he was deployed to Kunar Province, Afghanistan as a Platoon Leader with the 2-503d ABN and later to Wardak Province, Afghanistan as a Company Commander with 2-5 IN. In total, he spent 25 months deployed to the highly contentious areas along the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. He left the US Army in May of 2013 after completing a successful Company Command to pursue a professional career in finance. Murawski joined the team at Drexel Hamilton in April of 2016.
Marking the 100th Anniversary of America’s entry into World War I and a century of US global leadership, the Symposium will address and advance the ongoing national dialogue about the way forward in U.S. civil-military relations; substantive issues, challenges and opportunities affecting veterans and actively-serving members of the Armed Forces; and America’s role, status and influence in an increasingly complex and multipolar world.
In keeping with this year’s theme of ‘service’ in its many forms, the Symposium will offer content and programming that highlight a commitment to fostering civil-military relations and a dedication to the promotion of a broad and inclusive interpretation of national service. This event represents the latest undertaking in a series of major collaborations between Yale and West Point that was catalyzed by the 2015 Yale Veterans Summit, the first national veterans/military conference of its kind within the Ivy League.

All are welcome to the Symposium, particularly those interested in national security, foreign affairs, military-related matters, veterans issues, and ways in which society can better engage and interact with our nation’s military and veteran population. We hope to see a diverse and representative cohort of attendees participating meaningfully in this important national conversation.
The event will take place from Friday, Apr 21, 2017, 3:00 PM – Saturday, Apr 22, 2017, 6:00 PM at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, NY 10996.
