As a Marine lieutenant during the Vietnam War, Karl Marlantes learned what every young officer learns – to fire a rifle, to command a platoon, to fight and to kill. Over the next four decades, he spent his time reading, thinking and writing a memoir that helped him come to terms with that experience.
To commemorate Constitution Day, California State University, Monterey Bay Professor David Reichard will present a talk on the topic “Beyond 5 to 4: Understanding How Supreme Court Justices Interpret the Constitution and Why it Matters,” at 8 p.m., Sept. 17.
