The Guest Lecture Series Presents Brigadier General Tom Draude

The Vietnam Center and Archive is proud to present Brigadier General Tom Draude on Thursday, March 1st at 7:00pm in the Lanier Auditorium of the Texas Tech University School of Law.  The lecture is free and open to the public.

Currently President and Chief Executive Office of the Marine Corps University Foundation, General Draude served for over 30 years in the US Marine Corps, including three tours in Vietnam. He later commanded Marine Security Guards in Europe, the Fifth Marine Regiment, and served as the Assistant Division Commander of the First Marine Division during Desert Shield and Desert Storm. He received two Distinguished Service Medals and ten personal awards for combat, including two Silver Stars and the Purple Heart.

The mission of the Vietnam Center and Archive Guest Lecture Series is to enrich the intellectual and cultural life of students, faculty, and the community at large by bringing distinguished individuals to campus for presentations on specific aspects of the Vietnam War, its lasting impact on American politics, society and culture, and on contemporary issues in Southeast Asia.

This lecture series is funded in part by a generous grant from the Helen Jones Foundation.  For more information on the 2012 VNCA Guest Lecture Series see http://www.vietnam.ttu.edu/GLS, or contact Mary Saffell at 806-742-9010 or mary.saffell@ttu.edu.
