Join us on Sunday, February 16 starting at 1:00 p.m. in Founder’s Hall for fellowship and a conversation with Lt. General Jay Gardner (Ret).

In 2003 Gen Garner was selected to lead the post-war reconstruction efforts in Iraq, along with three deputies, including British Major-General Tim Cross. Garner was regarded as a natural choice by the Bush administration given his earlier experience in the region including serving as the allied commander of Operation Provide Comfort; the multi-national mission to protect the Kurds in Northern Iraq following the first Gulf War. General Garner was to develop and implement plans to assist the Iraqis in developing governance and reconstructing the country once Saddam Hussein was deposed. Jay is currently an active defense and energy industry consultant and travels to the Middle East and the Kurdish region of Iraq several times a year.

Topics we’ll be discussing are:

  • Understanding the complexities of the people of Iraq including religious and ethnic influences
  • Our involvement with in Iraq
  • Iranian and Saudi influences in the region
  • Q & A

Please bring an appetizer to share!

No RSVP required!
