Tenth Henry Clay Hofheimer Lecture

UNRELEASED | August 03, 2005

At 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, 15 September 2005, the Joint Forces Staff College will present the Tenth Speaker in the Henry Clay Hofheimer Lecture Series. The lecture series is named in honor of the late Henry Clay Hofheimer II, a prominent Hampton Roads area industrialist, businessman, and philanthropist, who was widely known for his dedication to promoting cooperation between the civilian and military communities. He is particularly remembered for over 50 years of personal support of the Joint Forces Staff College. When the college was established in 1946, Mr. Hofheimer correctly foresaw that it would become an important center for international goodwill and military cooperation, and that its location in Norfolk would be a significant asset to the Hampton Roads area.

The series features yearly lectures by current or former military or political leaders of national reputation and stature. Each of these leaders lectures, teaches, and writes about matters of national or international strategic importance. This year’s speaker is Rear Admiral Louis V. Iasiello, Chaplain Corps, USN. RADM Iasiello’s presentation is entitled “Davey Crockett, Josiah Bartlett and the Code of the Warrior: Reflections on the War on Terrorism.”

This coat and tie event is open to the public, however seating is limited, and reservations are required. Please call 443-6159 to reserve seats or for additional information.
