National Constitution Center

525 Arch Street Independence Mall Philadelphia PA 19106
When:
  • Friday January 17th 2014

Former U.S. Secretary of Defense and 2011 Liberty Medal recipient Robert M. Gates returns to the National Constitution Center to unveil his latest book, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War—a strikingly candid account of his experience serving as secretary of state under both President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama. The former head of the Pentagon will discuss how he juggled multiple wars abroad, as well as the political realities at home. His talk also will focus on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, national security, “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and the mission to capture and kill Osama Bin Laden.
