“Finland and Sweden Seem Likely to Join NATO. What That Means for America and the Arctic Region. ”


Due to circumstances beyond our control, tonight’s lecture will be held at the Channing Memorial Church at 135 Pelham Street. The church is right next door to the Elks on Pelham Street and you can park in the Elks lot. We apologize for any inconvenience but we look forward to seeing you tonight.

The members of VFW Post 406, Newport, invite the public to a special presentation, Tuesday, May 24th on how the war in Ukraine is affecting NATO. 

Please arrive at 5:00 pm for a cocktail hour (cash bar) at the Elks Lodge.  The lecture begins promptly at 6:00 PM at Channing Memorial Church.

Dr. Walter Berbrick, an Associate Professor at the U.S. Naval War College, will present a lecture; “Finland and Sweden Seem Likely to Join NATO.  What That Means for America and the Arctic Region. ” The talk will explore the irony that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine was based on the goal of bringing parts of Eastern Europe back into the former Soviet sphere of influence and to weaken NATO. In fact, the effort is having the opposite effect.

Come meet your local veterans and hear about how the War in Ukraine is affecting NATO and Europe’s security posture.

Suggested donation,  $10.00.
