World Affairs council - "The Attack of the Drones"

1 Oct 2013

The World Affairs Council of Western North Carolina
In conjunction with The Department of Political Science at UNCA
And the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Invites you to a presentation of “Attack of the Drones: Revolution or Evolution in Warfare?”

Tuesday – 1 October

Of several advancements in military technology over the last few decades few have evoked more attention and controversy than the aerial drones that have been used against terrorist and insurgent targets. Major General Rick Devereaux, now a defense industry consultant, a career that was preceded by service in the Air Force, will bring his military officer’s perspective to a discussion of these weapons and how they are changing warfare, national defense strategy, and the military itself.
