After Pearl Harbor, our civilian economy quickly pivoted to become the great arsenal of democracy. History proves this worked as a mechanism to defeat our enemies in WWII. What is the landscape for today? Join our featured guest, former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel for an exciting, virtual panel discussion with Arsenal of Democracy author A.J. Baime and Ford Motor Company historian Ted Ryan as they explore the role US private industry played and continues to play in facing challenges at home and abroad. Program begins at 5:00 p.m. ET.

Program and the Featured Document Presentation commemorating the end of World War II are made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation, through the generous support of Ford Motor Company Fund.
