As per tradition, the Stars and Stripes event at BEYA on Friday evening will celebrate the service of African American military veterans, and honor those currently serving. This Black History Month Tribute to the nation’s warriors is one of the highlights at BEYA, attracting defense industry CEOs, service chiefs, and senior Department of Defense leaders.
Marking 15 years of Stars & Stripes tradition, the most recent Veterans edition of Black Engineer magazine features top generals and admirals, members of the federal senior executive service (SES), and career trends in the defense industry.
The Stars & Stripes program is an integral part of the BEYA Conference, produced by Career Communications Group, publisher of Black Engineer magazine. Stars and Stripes honor active and retired African American admirals, generals and members of the SES.

Each year the featured service of the Stars & Stripes event alternates between the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and National Guard Bureau. The featured service is determined on a rotating basis.
