Celebrate the Release of The Pentagon Labyrinth

The book launch for The Pentagon Labyrinth will be held at the Officers' Club at Fort Myer in Rosslyn, Va. on March 2, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. Details and directions follow below.
You are invited to join us for the release of the printed version of The Pentagon Labyrinth: 10 Short Essays to Help You Through It. The hard copies will be hot off the press and a free copy will be available to all who attend.
When: Wednesday, March 2 at 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. 
Where: The Old Guard Lounge (downstairs) at the Officers' Club at Fort Myer in Rosslyn, Va. (See directions below.)
What: Meet the authors; debate the issues with us, or just enjoy the event. There will be a cash bar and light snacks.
Directions: Find driving directions to Fort Myer here: http://www.jbmhhmwr.com/index/Maps_and_Directions.html 
At the gate at the entrance to the Fort, ask the guard for directions to the Officers' Club. At the Officers' Club, use the side entrance on the right of the building; go downstairs.
If you do not have a DOD or military ID, at the gate your car will briefly be inspected by a polite guard, and your driver's license will be checked. 
If you are using the Metro, get off the Blue Line at Rosslyn, take the short cab ride to the Officers' Club at Fort Myer; once there, it will be easy to find someone at the event willing to drop you back off at the Metro on the way out.

The Pentagon Labyrinth: 10 Short Essays to Help You Through It is a 150 page handbook-guide for both newcomers and seasoned observers to cope with the often byzantine nature of defense issues. The anthology's ten authors bring over 400 years of experience in the military services, weapons design and testing, Pentagon management, budget and cost analysis, defense investigations, journalism, intelligence, military history and congressional national security staff work.
The Pentagon Labyrinth is also available for electronic download at several Web sites, including the CDI Straus Military Reform Project at http://www.cdi.org/program/index.cfm?programid=37 and the Project On Government Oversight (POGO) at http://dnipogo.org/labyrinth/.
We hope to see you there.
