Thursday, October 10 2019 11:30 AM 2:00 PM

The AFCEA Southern Maryland Chapter and The Patuxent Partnership are proud to host theFormer Secretary of the Navy, John F. Lehman, Jr. at a luncheon and book signing event for his critically-acclaimed book: Oceans Ventured: Winning the Cold War at Sea.

The former Secretary of the Navy under U.S. President Ronald Reagan recounts the Navy's decisive role in ending the Cold War, bolstering his narrative with recently declassified documents.

"Oceans Ventured describes the men and events that enabled the Navy to snatch the strategic initiative from a Soviet navy determined to challenge the U.S. around the globe ... Oceans Ventured, in its engrossing and illuminating narrative, reminds us that numbers are less important than strategy. Let’s hope a new generation of thinkers will soon gather to determine how best to respond to China’s rising challenge. Who knows? Maybe they’ve gathered already, and their plan is recorded on someone’s napkin." Arthur Herman, The Wall Street Journal

Thursday, October 10th at 11:30am at the Bay District Social Hall in Lexington Park, Mayland.
