  Bill Kurtis, Keynote Speaker, CSI Symposium

August 25, 2009, Eisenhower Auditorium
 
     
  Bill Kurtis, CEO of Kurtis Productions, spoke to attendees of the Combat Studies Institute Symposium and CGSC Classes 09-01 and 10-01 on his experiences as a correspondent from 1966 to the present.  The majority of his speech addressed his experience in reporting on the effects of Agent Orange on American Soldiers and the Vietnam landscape, although he covered a number of related issues such as the fall of Saigon. During the question and answer session, Mr. Kurtis fielded questions about the impact of technology on the press and objectivity of the press in wartime. When asked how the military could best work with the media community, Mr. Kurtis offered two points, "Utilize the local media," and "Don't lose the trust of the media, because it's impossible to get back."
