Churchill gave his famous ‘Iron Curtain’ Speech in 1946
These events took place at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury and the National Churchill Museum on the campus of Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri. It was on the campus of Westminster College on 5 March 1946 that Winston Churchill gave his famous ‘Iron Curtain’ speech.
During his 37-year career in the U.S. Army, General Petraeus was widely recognized for his command of the organization that produced the U.S. Army’s counterinsurgency manual and overhauled all aspects of preparing U.S. Army leaders and units for deployment to combat. Before his retirement in 2011, his commands included the leadership of the Surge in Iraq and for his command of forces in Afghanistan. Upon retirement from the U.S. Army, he became Director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.
