Advancing Journalistic Excellence Since 1932


The ANWC is thrilled to welcome U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Kevin Bogucki, Defense for Guantanamo Bay detainees to the club for our Wednesday, September 17 program.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Director of the Secret Service will no longer be able to attend Wednesday's event. Instead, the ANWC is pleased to welcome U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Kevin Bogucki to tell his incredible story about representing Guantanamo Bay detainees. 

Bogucki represents three men who are currently detained at Guantanamo Bay prison. He has called the system at Guantanamo "absurd and Un-American," saying representing the detainees is the "most patriotic thing" he's done in his military career. Bogucki will share with us the details of a few of these cases and give us an inside look at the notorious prison.
