This week on Talk World Radio we’re discussing nuclear weapons and war with Ken Mayers from Veterans For Peace, which has — in anticipation of the Biden administration’s nuclear posture review — released its own nuclear posture review. See https://veteransforpeace.org
About Ken Mayers: The Marine Corps paid Ken’s way through Princeton as an NROTC scholarship holder. He graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering in 1958 and accepted a commission as a regular Marine Corps Officer, intending to make the service his career. However, his experience as an instrument of US foreign policy drove him out of the Corps at the end of 1966 when he returned to graduate studies at UC Berkeley, earning a Ph.D. in so-called Political Science. In 1986 Ken was recruited into Veterans for Peace by then President John Barr, another former career Marine Corps Officer. In July 2002, Ken co-founded the Santa Fe Chapter of VFP. Ken was a member of the national VFP Board of Directors from 2004 through 2009 and national treasurer from 2005 through 2009. He was again elected to the Board in 2020.
