WASHINGTON D.C., DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, May 20, 2024 / — The 1st Annual U.S.–Ukraine Freedom Summit, set to take place from June 5-7, 2024, at the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View and Andrews Air Force Base, MD, is not just a venue for high-level discussions on defense and Veterans affairs—it’s a prime opportunity for forging long-lasting partnerships and collaborative endeavors. This year, the summit will feature several tailored networking sessions aimed at enhancing collaboration between leaders from various sectors.

Event Details:

• Date: June 5-7, 2024

• Location: Residence Inn Arlington Capital View, Washington D.C., and Andrews Air Force Base, MD

Recognizing the importance of connections that lead to collaborative success, the summit organizers have meticulously planned networking sessions that allow attendees to interact, share ideas, and initiate cooperative projects. These sessions are designed to connect policymakers, defense industry experts, Veteran support advocates, and business leaders from both the United States and Ukraine.

“While it’s vital to equip warfighters in Ukraine with the tools and support they need to succeed on the battlefield, it’s equally important to ensure they receive the treatment and rehabilitation required for rapid mental health recovery,” said Rob French, Director of Business Development at Red Cat. “We are aligned with The Borderlands Foundation’s mission and are honored to sponsor this year’s U.S.-Ukraine Veterans Charity Golf Tournament.”

“The program, participants and the structure of activities are designed to facilitate direct face to face exchanges between synergistic organizations. It is intended to foster relationship development and new paths for collaboration and innovation. We expect to create a wide range of new partnerships focused on enhanced defense of Ukraine while also exploring new and evolving Veterans Affair programs related to ever growing need for support for Veterans and their families. The connections begin on Day 1 – June 5, 2024. Look froward to exploring new opportunities to amplify our efforts to help Ukraine to achieve victory and lasting peace.” John Lyons – CEO I720 Global and Strategic Advisor to the 1st Freedom Summit
