Naval War College Review


Philip Geyelin


I am especially happy to be here this evening and to be given the opportunity to talk to so distinguished a gathering about matters concerning our respective trades-the media and the military. A similar adventure before a comparable audience at the Marine Corps Schools in Quantico makes me fully aware that there exists in military circles a certain lack of affinity with the press. You might even call it a hostility. They were polite down at Quantico and militarily proper, standing up when we came in and again when we walked out. But in between it was Bangladesh.
