Perspectives Lecture Series

The annual Perspectives Lecture Series is a seasonal lecture series that provides a discussion of current and historical topics critical to the understanding and practice of strategic leadership. Consisting of a Spring and Fall season of four lectures each, Perspectives seasons highlight a particular theme important to the study of the military profession.
Featured speakers include Army leaders, veterans, military historians, and scholars from around the world.


Army Heritage Days

The USAHEC hosts an annual timeline living history event, Army Heritage Days, which examines nearly every era of U.S. Army history. As part of Army Heritage Days, the USAHEC hosts many specialized events, including workshops, demonstrations, reenactments, and Veteran "meet and greets," both outside on the mile-long Army Heritage Trail and inside the Visitor and Education Center.

Please note, Army Heritage Days will not take place in 2021.
