Terrorism threat is next Forum topic

December 01, 2008

University Park, Pa. — Oliver "Buck" Revell, global business and security consultant and former Marine and FBI special agent, will discuss "Terrorism, the Current and Future Threat to America," during the Penn State Forum from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Dec. 8, at the President's Hall, The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel, University Park.

Revell served for five years as an Officer and Aviator in the U.S. Marine Corps, leaving active duty in 1964 as a Captain. He then served 30 years as a special agent and senior executive of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (1964-1994). In September 1987, Revell was placed in charge of a joint FBI/CIA/U.S. military operation (Operation Goldenrod) which led to the first apprehension overseas of an international terrorist.

Revell has won numerous awards, including the Albert J. Wood Public Affairs Award by the Middle East Forum for his "efforts in the fight against International Terrorism."

The luncheons, modeled after the National Press Club Speaker Series, include a presentation by an invited speaker, followed by audience questions. This year the series is being sponsored by the offices of the Executive Vice President and Provost, the Senior Vice President for Finance and Business, and the Penn State Bookstore. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased through the id+Office at 103 HUB-Robeson or by calling (814) 865-7590.

 The event begins with lunch at 11:30 a.m., followed by Revell's talk beginning at noon.
