Grissom Library's War In Film Series
For the first time in American history, the majority of the country's people have not served in the military. Most of the public's knowledge of our military and warfare comes from movies instead of personal experiences. Come see classic and contemporary films, and discuss with veterans and community members how they shape our view of the Armed Forces in the execution of their duties.
The last Thursday of the month, at 6 P.M., in the Grissom Meeting Room.
