In addition to teaching military science at West Point, he is also an author of several works including: "Full Spectrum Disorder: The Military in the New American Century" and "Hideous Dream: A Soldier's Memoir of the U.S. Invasion of Haiti."

The event is free and open to the public.  Contact Grove at (724) 946-7254 or e-mail for more information.
