WTAMU hosts Lessons Learned from our Wars

CANYON, TX (KFDA) - The Cornette Library at West Texas A&M University will host a panel discussion on Lessons Learned from our Wars tomorrow evening.

Starting at 6:00 p.m., the panel will look at a series of questions regarding World War I, including:

  • Should America try to "make the world safe for democracy?"
  • Are American claims to moral leadership abroad vitiated by racial injustice at home?
  • What happens when the loyalty of an American minority comes under suspicion during wartime?
  • How should a democratic society rally popular support for war, and how should it deal with dissent at home while it is fighting overseas?
  • How does combat forever change the trajectory of individual lives?
  • What does the nation owe to those who fight on its behalf?

This is the first of two events the library will host on the topics related to war. The second panel is scheduled for Nov. 14.

The event will be held in the Hazlewood Lecture Room at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum and is free to the public.

For more information about the panels, call (806) 651-2225.
