On Wednesday, May 18th at 7:00 p.m., Lisa Lahti and Kathleen O’Beirne will present “They also served: spouses then and now,” at the UConn/Avery Point auditorium (2nd floor of the academic building). The program is free and open to the public.
Lisa Lahti, wife of CAPT. Carl A. Lahti, former commanding officer of Naval Submarine Base New London, will represent NOW. Kathleen O’Beirne, former director of the Navy Family Service Center and wife of a former commanding officer of Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, will contrast with THEN. They will talk about the issues faced by military spouses and how those challenges have changed (and how much progress has been made since 1960). Participants will have an opportunity to share their perspectives as well as we celebrate Subase’s 100 Years.
