Good afternoon!

I hope you can join us for the final Center for Security Policy Studies speaker event of the semester.

On Wednesday, April 10th Professors Jeannie Johnson and our very own John Gordon will discuss Johnson's new book, The Marines, Counterinsurgency and Strategic Culture from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm in Founders Hall Room 113. 

Do you want to learn more about the conflicts in Iraq & Afghanistan? 

Are you curious about why it took the U.S. military so long to re-learn the lessons of Vietnam (as an Iraq vet I know I am)? 

Do you wonder if the U.S. is likely to forget these hard earned (and re-learned) lessons once again in its haste to prepare for 'great power' competition? 

If so, this book talk is for you!

I hope to see you there!
