USNA 78/parent 11/BGO for >25yrs
- Aug 27, 2010
I was part of the Foreign Affairs Conference 40 yrs ago and attended part of it this year. One of my fellow International Security Affairs Majors (and classmate) from back in the day was the speaker for the Forrestal Lecture so I joined several classmates in attending. We were pretty noticeable so your DD probably saw us.Paul,
Just sent me a tee shirt from the USNA Foreign Affairs Conference where she moderated a panel and was assigned a Senate Staffer to "work for her". She was embarassed, felt like she should be working for him; the guy was a published author re: terrorism. She's done multiple conferences and situation exercises in DC attended by think-tank folks and grad students from GTown and grad students traveling from Harvard, Yale, Etc. She is doing work for "3 letter" agencies/service offices this summer and likely next. She just surprised me with her tentative plan to do a summer block at the London School of Economics in her C1--C2? year. She will have to foot the bill for tution on that one, but thinks USNA will approve. Point is USNA is a pretty rich place for non-stem people.
