Reminder: General Winfield Lecture is this Thursday

The Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for POW/Missing Personnel Affairs and Director of the DPMO, Major General W. Montague Winfield, will be speaking on the Department of Defense’s worldwide commitment to the fullest possible accounting of Americans missing in action from all conflicts, including the more than 1600 from the Vietnam War.  The lecture will be this Thursday at 7:00pm in the Lanier Auditorium of the Texas Tech School of Law.  Admission is free and open to the public.

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 or about Rocky Bleier see http://www.vietnam.ttu.edu/GLS.
