NEWPORT, R.I. – “The Political Argument Today” will be George Will’s topic for his Evening Lecture at the Naval War College (NWC) on Feb. 28 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The renowned political columnist and analyst, who won the Pulitzer Prize for distinguish commentary in 1977, will also tour NWC facilities and attend several administrative briefings during his day-long visit.
