      EVENT DETAILS
      David Kennedy: The Modern American Military

      Donald J. McLachlan Professor of History, Emeritus, Stanford University; Editor, The Modern American Military

      The advent of the all-volunteer force and the evolving nature of modern warfare have transformed our military, changing it in serious if subtle ways that few Americans are aware of, says Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Kennedy. He looks at issues such as who serves and why and the impact of non-uniformed “contractors” in war zone.
