The Army’s top operations officer will be the featured speaker July 22 on The AUSA Noon Report.

Lt. Gen. Charles Flynn, deputy Army chief of staff for operations, will participate in the livestream event, hosted by Association of the U.S. Army, alongside retired Gen. Carter Ham, AUSA president and CEO.

As the Army G-3/5/7, Flynn is responsible for operations and strategic plans, and most recently he has helped lead the Army’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the Army’s efforts to balance training and readiness with health and safety measures—from implementing screening and testing at installations across the country to developing a blueprint for how the force should return to large-scale training.

“There's a whole other series of variables that we need to look at to make sure we understand the environment that we're going to be living and operating in,” Flynn said during a press briefing earlier this year.

Four components being examined at every installation include conditions in the local community, testing capability, treatment availability, and monitoring and tracing response, Flynn said.

“Those four are a baseline of what we're trying to understand at each installation, so it informs decisions that the chief and secretary make for large-scale training, PCS-ing, schooling, opening commissaries, all of that,” Flynn said.

There is no cost to watch the event, which starts at noon Eastern, but registration is required. For more information or to register, click here.
