mvsclogoNote: early start tonight.

On this day in 1969, President Richard Nixon announced that from that day forward, the US would expect that its allies in Asia (read: South Vietnam) would be responsible for their own military defense except for the threat of a major power with nuclear weapons (read:China).  Thus began a draw down that led to America signing a peace treaty with North Vietnam in 1973 and the fall of Saigon in 1975.

Ponder this chain of events with us tonight at MvsC1011 McGowan, at 7:00 PM. Note that the parking situation in midtown is ever-evolving, so consult the handy-dandy, superific, MvsC-specific parking guide before you head that direction.  Fittingly, you are responsible for your own tabs and transportation.
