Reminiscences of a Military Historian
Speaker: Jeff Davis

Jeff Davis deployed to Southwest Asia in 2002 and from 2003-2004. He worked as a military historian, both authoring reports, as well as going from base to base interviewing soldiers about their experiences in the Global War on Terrorism. While respecting the privacy of those he interviewed, Jeff will share some of the mostly humorous, often ironic experiences he had during his deployments.

Jeff Davis joined the U.S. Army Reserves in 1979 at the Vancouver Barracks, and served over 30 years of active and reserve military service. He has served in Italy, Bosnia, and Southwest Asia, and two deployments with Operation Enduring Freedom as a military historian. Major Davis' final assignment was as the Command Historian for the 104th Division, where he was the defacto army historian of the Vancouver Barracks. Jeff Davis was also the principal author for the book "Weird Washington" and co-author of "Weird Oregon".

The presentation will last about 60 minutes, from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM at the Marshall House, on Officer’s Row. This no admission fee.
