John McCance, Co-Chair of the Dayton Peace Accords At 20 Celebration joined me in studio to talk about Former President Bill Clinton's visit next week as the key note speaker November 19 to discuss his role in the peace keeping process that occurred at Wright Patterson Air Force Base 20 years ago this month.
"We're trying to accommodate a few more seats for President Clinton's speech at the UD River campus .. but we urge everyone to watch the live stream." McCance suggested.
Along with 42's appearance, other commemorative events include the dedication of Ambassador Richard Holbrooke Plaza as well as a screening of David Holbrooke's documentary of his father's successful efforts to broker peace between the worn-torn countries of Serbia, Bosnia, Herzegovina and Croatia..civil unrest that claimed the lives of over one hundred thousand people, displacing 2 million more.
