Army colonel will talk about Afghan conflict

A professor of military strategy at the U.S. Naval War College will discuss the war in Afghanistan at 7 p.m. May 11 at the library, 26 North Road.

Army Col. Bob Cassidy, a Jamestown resident, will highlight his experiences in the region during four tours to the Middle East. Most recently, he returned in March from Kabul, where he evaluated Afghan security forces. During the free 90-minute lecture, Cassidy will provide candid insights about whether America’s investment of blood, time and money in Afghanistan is justified.
