Event description
Florida Veterans for Common Sense will honor American Patriot Thomas Paine at our annual Paine birthday celebration dinner. Celebrants will enjoy a delicious dinner and join in honoring our Thomas Paine Award winner Desmond Meade, who was instrumental in the passage of the recent Florida Constitutinal Amendment to restore voting rights to felons, after they have completed their sentence.
 Our guest speaker for the evening will be Col. Andrew Bacevich, Sr. (USA Ret.). He holds a PH.D. in American Diplomatic History from Princeton University, and taught at West Point and Johns Hopkins University before joining the faculty at Boston University. 
Bacevich will speak about current foreign policy. He argues that our current foreign policy debate is short-sighted and ahistorical. Instead of blaming one president, or party, for contemporary policy he sees both Republicans and Democrats as sharing responsibility for policies that may not be in America’s best interest. 
 Celebrants will enjoy the sounds of the Pineview School Jazz Quartet during the evening.
