Our time to dazzle!

Dear Colleagues,

A few months ago, I asked members of the Military Libraries Division to send me a story or two about being a military librarian, but heard back from only four of the more than 200 members.  Please consider making a contribution now!

The Military Libraries Division of SLA is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.  We would like your help to create something special for current members, to dazzle members of other divisions (!), and to attract new members – a book filled with your stories and recollections.

Would you be willing to answer one or more of these questions, and send me your responses?

– Why did you first decide to work in a military library?  Was there something special that intrigued you about this type of library?  Was there a veteran or military member in your life who suggested that you get into this type of special librarianship?  If so, would you share the story with your colleagues?

– How do you make a difference as a military library employee?  Do you remember a special project, or customer, or challenge that you could relate?

– How does working in a military library inspire you?  Can you tell us one or more stories about special times in your career?

– What has your career meant to you, and why would you encourage others to become military librarians?

There is no set length for this assignment – it can be as short or as long as you like!   Please send me your contributions – preferably in the body of an email. I will edit (with your permission) and compile them into a booklet that we will post on our Division website for everyone to enjoy.

The new deadline for contributions is Friday, 30 August 2013.

My email address:  gnicula1@verizon.net

Dr. Gail Nicula
DOD Director

"Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense by Dr. Gene Kopelson" presentation at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center

Published on Feb 24, 2017

As Ronald Reagan traveled across the United States campaigning for the highest office in the land, the Governor of California possessed an ace in his hand unmatched by his opponents: the ear and advice of former president Dwight D. Eisenhower. Reagan was in constant contact with Ike, following his advice at every turn and going so far as to base his entire 1966 campaign on his mentor’s own successful run years before. Eisenhower’s astute view of internal Washington politics, foreign affairs, military matters, and the swirling pool of primary rivals, provided his protégé the fuel he needed to learn, and eventually win, the war of words. In his latest book, Reagan’s 1968 Dress Rehearsal: Ike, RFK, and Reagan’s Emergence as a World Statesman, Dr. Gene Kopelson outlines the story of Reagan’s first presidential bid with an in-depth look behind the scenes. On Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Dr. Kopelson gave a lecture titled, “Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense,” to delve deeper into the relationship between Reagan and his mentor and how it not only shaped Reagan’s future campaigns, but his presidency, as well.

In his lecture at the USAHEC, Dr. Kopelson uses never-before-tapped audio clips, interviews with the original 1968 campaign staff, Eisenhower’s personal diary, and material straight from personal correspondence to show how Eisenhower influenced Reagan’s politics and eventually, his far-reaching presidential policies. From Reagan’s hawkish views on Vietnam to his perspective on the Arab-Israeli situation, his groundbreaking steps with Gorbachev and the Soviets to nuclear defense, Eisenhower and Reagan had a close and personal relationship which changed America’s future.
