The next Public Affairs meeting is scheduled for THURSDAY MARCH 14, 2024 at 2:00pm and it will be a "virtual Meeting" via ZOOM.

The Topic for open discussion is: "NATO"

DO you know?

  • Why OTAN? (no, it is not a mirror image)

  • One NATO member has a national defense budget of $0.

  • What country stayed in NATO even though 80% of the population did not want to stay?


​Formed in the aftermath of WW2, NATO evolved out of bilateral European defense treaties. It was a response to aggressive policies of the Soviet sponsored Warsaw Pact. We will look at how NATO exists today.


Discussion topics:

  • What is the purpose of NATO?

  • Question: Can small countries contribute ANYTHING to the alliance?

  • Issue: Standardization / interchangeability is it possible?
