WASHINGTON, March 8, 2019 — As America approaches the 16th anniversary of the war in Iraq, combat Veteran, and U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth will speak at a National Press Club Headliners Newsmaker on Wednesday, March 13 at 12:30 p.m. She will talk about how she feels the U.S. Congress is failing in its duty to provide the U.S. troops with the moral and legal backing they need and deserve to most effectively wage war.

In her remarks, Duckworth will lay out her vision for how Americans can ensure their military remains the strongest in the world. She will argue that America can no longer view its national security interests as separate and distinct from its domestic policies. She will make a case for investing in progressive priorities like healthcare, education and green energy as a means to bolster America’s national strength and better serve its military readiness.

This news conference will take place in the Club’s Holeman Lounge, and is open to credentialed media and members of the National Press Club.

The National Press Club is located on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building at 529 14th St., NW, Washington, D.C.

• Club member Waterfield plans to publish history about London at War.

National Press Club

Larry Waterfield, a member of the National Press Club, is looking forward to seeing his book, Metropolis at War: London, published in New York and London.

“There was terror on a grand scale,” Waterfield wrote, explaining that we may live in the “age of terror” but in World War II, London, the biggest city in the world at the time, faced five years of terror bombing, terror rockets, the threat of invasion, occupation, starvation and a submarine blockade that cut off food and supplies.

The city struggled on, the large newspapers printed, the movie studios made films, the BBC broadcast worldwide in dozens of languages, he said.

Waterfield notes there is new information because key bits were kept secret until recently: a plan to invade Ireland, and a plan to control India.

The publisher is Austin Macauley Publishers.
