Description

Former US Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird is seen in a family photo with his family member, both of them are smiling Melvin Robert "Bom" Laird (born September 1, 1922) is an American politician and writer. He was a U.S. congressman from Wisconsin before serving as Secretary of Defense from 1969 to 1973 under President Richard Nixon. Laird was instrumental in forming the administration's policy of withdrawing U.S. soldiers from the Vietnam War; he invented the expression "Vietnamization," referring to the process of transferring more responsibility for combat to the South Vietnamese forces. He was born in Omaha, Nebraska. Laird was the grandson of William D. Connor, the Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin from 1907 to 1909, and the great-grandson of Robert Connor, a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly. He graduated from Carleton College in Minnesota in May 1944, having enlisted in the United States Navy a year earlier. Laird entered the Wisconsin State Senate at age 23, succeeding his deceased father Melvin R. Laird, Sr.[2] He represented a legislative district encompassing Stevens Point, Wisconsin. He remained in the Senate until his election in November 1952 to the United States House of Representatives representing Wisconsin's 7th District in central Wisconsin, including the areas of Marshfield, Wausau, Wisconsin Rapids and Stevens Point. After he became Secretary of Defense, Laird and President Nixon appointed a Blue Ribbon Defense Panel that made more than 100 recommendations on DoD's organization and functions in a report on 1 July 1970. The department implemented a number of the panel's proposals while Laird served in the Pentagon. Photo Taken - 16 December 1968 people, men, women, standing, smiling, 1968, standing, posing, looking
