Choices and Trends for Women "from Teens to Grandmothers"

New York Military Affairs Symposium Spring 2015 Lectures & Symposia *starts 1/30

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 LTC Sharon Lacey discussing Pacific Blitzkrieg: World War II in the Central Pacific on May 22 and the 2-day F.D.R. Conference on March 27 – 28 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.
