A speakers’ bureau sponsored by the Association of the U.S. Army’s Institute of Land Warfare has almost doubled the number of people available to talk about national security and military history topics.

Launched last year, the speakers’ bureau provides experts on a wide range of Army topics, including current and historic operations, military and civilian personnel policies, national security matters and other issues of interest to AUSA members, chapters and the general public.

Now, 18 authors of AUSA-sponsored books join the 19 subject-matter experts available from the speakers’ bureau.

This includes authors such as retired Col. Dominic Caraccilo, whose seven books include Forging a Special Operations Force: The US Army Rangers, and Beyond Guns and Steel: A War Termination Strategy and a memoir about Operation Desert Storm; retired Brig Gen. John R. Scales, a Vietnam War and Afghanistan veteran who has written three military history books including Sherman Invades Georgia: Planning the North Georgia Campaign Using a Modern Perspective; and retired Col. Cole C. Kingseed, the former U.S. Military Academy professor of military history and best-selling author who wrote Old Glory Stories: American Combat Leadership in World War II.

ILW speakers can be requested by any AUSA member, including individual and community members, national partners or chapters. While they are available to speak at non-AUSA events, it must be an AUSA member who makes the request.
