Loyalty, Reason and Action: Lessons Learned from the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) Repeal

The 1950 guidebook for military officers titled “The Armed Forces Officer” states “the nature of loyalty requires that (the commissioned officer) will use his force toward the righting of those things which reason convinces him are going wrong.”  How does one “right the wrongs” without compromising one’s Oath?  Col Gary Packard will share his personal journey, experiences as a writer on the DoD study of DADT repeal, to include a summary of the process and major findings, and lessons he learned along the way to walk the walk on difficult social issues with integrity.

Thursday, May 3rd, 7:00 − 9:00 pm in Shove Chapel on the Colorado College campus, Colorado Springs.

Free and open to the public
