Keeping the Edge: Revitalizing America's Military Officer Corps February 9, 2010 3:30-7:00 p.m. with Reception Willard Intercontinental Hotel RSVP online here To respond to a rapidly changing strategic environment and an ever-growing array of demands, the U.S. military must develop and maintain a high degree of adaptability within its officer corps. Indeed, America relies on its armed forces to perform a wider variety of functions than any other nation in history, and existing methods of training and education may not be sufficient to cultivate the officer corps America will need in the future. In addition to demonstrating a high degree of proficiency in conventional military operations, officers should also develop broader skill sets and knowledge to cope with a more complicated and rapidly evolving international environment. On February 9, the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) will release a major report at an event on how the United States can revitalize its military officer corps to meet current national security challenges, and those that lie ahead. General James N. Mattis,USMC, Commander of U.S. Joint Forces Command, will deliver the keynote address, in addition to distinguished panel of experts who will offer their perspective on this important issue, including: Rear Admiral James P. "Phil" Wisecup, USN, President of the Naval War College; Major General Charles J. Dunlap, Jr., USAF, Deputy Judge Advocate General at U.S. Air Force Headquarters; Lieutenant General David Barno, USA (Ret.), Director, Near East South Asia Center for Strategic Studies at National Defense University; and Dr. John Nagl, President of CNAS. Date and Time: February 9, 2010 3:30-4:00 p.m.: Event registration 4:00-6:00 p.m.: Event 6:00-7:00 p.m.: Reception Location: Willard Intercontinental Hotel's Willard Room 1401 Pennsylvania Ave., NW Washington, D.C. 20004 RSVP: RSVP online here.
