Choices and Trends for Women "from Teens to Grandmothers"

NEW YORK MILITARY AFFAIRS SYMPOSIUM *Winter/Spring LECTURE SERIES! nyc

We have previously mentioned how special an experience it is to talk and listen to military minds, in live conversation, who discuss history with a veteran’s precision.  Come see for yourselves. Free and Open to the Public. We especially look forward to Kayla Williams discussing women in the Army on March 14, but all of the talks are HIGHLY Recommended.

NYMAS is devoted to increasing public knowledge, awareness, and understanding of the interrelationship of war, society, and culture through the presentation and dissemination of diverse scholarly viewpoints.
