NATO Then, Now, and In The Future
For nearly 70 years, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has provided a system of collective defense for North American and European Nations. Known as NATO, the alliance has grown from 12 nations when it came into existence in 1949 to 29, but it has maintained a system of collective defense in which independent member nations subscribe to mutual defense. NPC Broadcast/Podcast Committee member Lincoln Smith spoke with AICGS President Jeff Rathke about the history and meaning of the alliance in this NPC-Update 1 Podcast.
