Leah Bolger will give the annual Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Memorial Lecture for World Peace at Oregon State University.

Bolger, a Corvallis resident and Navy veteran who previously served as the national president of Veterans for Peace, will speak at 7:30 p.m. April 30 at the LaSells Stewart Center, 875 S.W. 26th St. Her talk, titled “Waging Peace,” is free and open to the public.

Bolger served for more than 20 years in the U.S. Navy, retiring in 2000 with the rank of commander. Since then she has been a full-time peace activist.

After moving to Oregon in 2004, Bolger formed the Linus Pauling chapter of Veterans for Peace and served as the group’s president for three years. In 2012 she became the first female president of the parent organization.

    Jules, if Jesus stood in front of you and gently pushed an attacking lion back so he wouldn't attack you, you would complain that Jesus was an anti-environmentalist! Geesh.
