Next U.S. Navy League meeting in P.C.:
Next Nl Dinner -- Col. Court Prisk Egypt, Syria, and related topics...
Please plan on joining us for an update on events in Egypt from Col. Court Prisk, US Army Ret.
From December 1979 through May 1981 he was Chief -- Plans Division, Middle East and Africa, J-5, Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon. When the late General H. "Stormin' Norman" Schwarzkopf, Jr. was ordered to prepare for the first Gulf War, they dusted off Col. Prisk's plan for the invasion of Iraq and Operation Desert Storm.
He is the co-author of "A Strategic View of Insurgencies: Insights from El Salvador" with Max G. Manwaring.
Col. Prisk has been touching base with his old friends so he will also be able to shed some light on Syria for those inclined to ask.

Place: Hotel Le Meridien
Price: $30 including glass of wine
RSVP to this email before 12:00 noon on the 9th, please.
