Title: CI Lecture: China: Friend or Enemy? A General’s Story
Date: Fri. Sep 19, 2014
Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Description:

General Bernard Loeffke is a hero in war and peace. He is the founder of Helping Others Today, the author of numerous books, and a distinguished soldier-statesman with an illustrious 36-year career in the United States Army. He served as defense attaché to the People’s Republic of China (becoming the first U.S Army General assigned to the American Embassy in China) and in 1973 co-led with Colin Powell, the first delegation of White House Fellows to China. His inspirational message will contribute to a better US-China relationship. This lecture is based on his book, China: Our Enemy? A General’s Story (2012).

Gen. Loeffke holds a BS in engineering from West Point Academy, an MA in Russian, a Ph.D. in political science and the United States Military Academy’s 2007 Distinguished Graduate Award for his lifetime achievements. He is fluent in four languages and has a working knowledge of Mandarin Chinese.
