General (Ret.) Stanley McChrystal

Military service and civilian national service are really two sides of the same coin. Both involve doing good work to solve problems, and both ultimately help make America a stronger nation. The young

people who join Teach For America each year are engaging in a form of national service that is focused on eliminating one of the biggest threats to our nation’s future prosperity—educational inequity. I

greatly admire the military veterans who, after serving America in a military uniform, chose to serve again as a part of Teach For America.
