How to address extremism among veterans | The Brookings Institution

December 3, 2021 @ 10:00 am11:00 am

The mob assault on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 opened a new chapter in domestic terrorism. For the first time in our nation’s history, America experienced its first non-peaceful post-election transfer of power. To date, more than 660 arrests have been made, and more than 12% of those arrested were veterans of the U.S. military.

The pace, scope, and scale of domestic violent extremism has been increasing, and national security experts are becoming increasingly concerned about the efforts of such groups to recruit active-duty military and veterans to their ranks for the purposes of committing violence and overthrowing the government of the United States.
