AUSA’s Thought Leaders webinar series—an extension of our Thought Leaders podcast—focuses on contemporary military authors and senior military leaders. Thought Leaders seeks to educate the public on critical issues affecting land forces and strategy.
Please join us on Wednesday, 23 June 2021 at 1400 EDT to hear a panel discussion on the Army’s Role in the Indo-Pacific with General Robert 'Bob' Brown, former Commanding General of U.S. Army Pacific and current Executive Vice President of AUSA; retired Admiral Scott H. Swift, former Commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet; Dr. Loren B. Thompson, COO of the Lexington Institute and CEO of Source Associates; and Dr. Tom Karako, Senior Fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
As the U.S. military continues to increase focus on the Indo-Pacific, the U.S. Army is making significant adjustments to better support the joint force in this priority theater of great power competition. With an understanding of the implications of changes in technology and the strategic security landscape, the Army is refining its operational concept of multi-domain operations, pursuing priority modernization initiatives such as long range precision fires, and experimenting with new formations such as the multi-domain task force in order to provide the combatant commander with the capability to prevail in competition, crisis, and if necessary, conflict. Perhaps most significantly, the Army’s exercise program and robust relationships across the region reassure U.S. allies and partners and enhances deterrence of potential adversaries. Join AUSA in discussing the implications of the ongoing changes in this dynamic theater for land power and the joint force with our three distinguished panelists.
