                                               SaddleBrooke Cold War Symposium

Presentation, 1:00-3:00pm at HOA-2 West Ballroom
NATO: North Atlantic Treaty Organization 

President George Washington cautioned America against European entanglements in his farewell address. We avoided permanent commitments thru the isolationist 1930s, but indulged a change of heart following World War II. 

Russian hostility after the war and Soviet troops in Eastern Europe made our western allies vulnerable. America not only stationed 350,000+ troops in Europe, we signed NATO’s Article 5, promising that an attack on any member was an attack on all. We stood by this promise with nuclear weapons, telling the Soviets that an attack on Europe constituted a tripwire for immediate response. 

Mark Schwartz, who served in the US component of NATO in 1977-78, will explore the formation of NATO, its internal tribulations, and current status. How relevant is this topic? It extends into the second Cold War that looms over us. 

Join us on March 14th, 1-3:00pm in HOA-2’s Mountain View West Ballroom.

We are part of the international Barbershop Harmony Society. We would love to have any men who like singing to try us out – you will find it is a unique singing style. We have tenors (high notes), leads (melody), and the low voices singing baritone and bass. We do not compete. Our goal is to have fun in addition to singing well.
