Captain Dallas Bethea presents Will History Repeat Itself?
The First Annual History Department Distinguished Alumni Lecture
In 1988, CSUN Alumnus Dallas Bethea commanding officer of the guided missile frigate USS Gary, confronted a challenge no US naval officer had faced in more than 40 years; surface combat with an armed foe. He will discuss this event and evaluate the possibility of a near future repeat in the Middle East or Pacific.
Captain Bethea will reflect on his 32 years in the Navy and how his time as a History major at CSUN shaped his successful career.
