May 2013 Photo Essay: Vietnam International Staff Ride
Another sneak peek at our upcoming May issue! Since 2000, the Strategic Studies department has held staff rides around the world so that students can witness historical sites, museums, and military operations in person. Students also gain leadership and decision-making skills that are valuable both inside and outside the field of strategic studies. The 2013 International Staff Ride, “The Tet Offensive,” took place in several cities in Vietnam. The following photos, compiled by editor Jack Bianchi, are courtesy of Eric Lindsey and Steve Farole.
