Our series continues with a discussion about the service that is required to uphold a social contract. We hear from Ray Mabus, former Secretary of the Navy and Governor of Mississippi; Alan Khazei, co-founder of City Year and longtime leader in the movement for national civilian service; and Stanley McChrystal, retired four-star general, former U.S. commander in Afghanistan, and chairman of Service Year Alliance.
