When I was an Army ROTC cadet at Georgetown University, we were taught the importance of being "warrior scholars." This Memorial Day it seems fitting to consider the raw brainpower that complements our civilian leadership at NATO.
I am a liberal Democrat who is opposed to the War in Afghanistan, was against the War in Iraq, and protested against the Vietnam War years ago. I guess you could call me a pacifist. But I love watching the Army-Navy game.
