Paul K. Chappell is the Peace Literacy Director for the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. He graduated from West Point in 2002, was deployed to Iraq in 2006, and left active duty in 2009 as a Captain. Chappell drew on his time in the military and his multiracial identity to introduce the concept of Peace Literacy (peaceliteracy.org), which he offers as a new paradigm to better understand not just peace and war, but also the art of living and what it means to be human. Chappell develops these ideas further in his seven-book series The Road to Peace.
