Bana Miller’s ’04 career focuses on advocating for our nation’s veterans and their families. And with good reason, as Miller’s husband is a veteran of the U.S. Army. Miller has seen first-hand the difficulties facing veterans and their families as they transition from active duty to civilian life. This summer, Miller was accepted into the 2021 Class of the George W. Bush Institute’s Stand to Veterans Leadership program, one of a select group of executives from across different industries who are committed to serving the military-connected community. Miller, who currently serves as director of marketing and communications for Team Red, White and Blue in Virginia, helps connect veterans to their community via physical and social activities. She discusses how being a Bush Institute scholar will further her efforts to make an impact for our veterans and the military-connected community, how she enjoyed a transformative experience at Syracuse University, and her best advice for current students.
