ROCK ISLAND -- Students of the U.S. Army War College and members of the Eisenhower National Security Series will speak on current social issues and the impact on America's Armed Forces on Wednesday, March 20, at 7 p.m. in Centennial Hall (3703 7th Ave.). The event is free and open to the public.
This is an opportunity to hear high-ranking military officers discuss the military and how they help solve world problems of diplomacy. In addition to the lecture, members of the Eisenhower National Security Series will visit classes throughout the day. Each member serves as the team's specialist on specific national public policy issues such as defense transformation, stability, operations, peacekeeping, future threats, information warfare, international terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, cyber-attacks, the Wounded Warrior program and other topical issues.
The U.S. Army War College, located in Carlisle Barracks, Pa., represents the highest level of education offered by the military services and is designed to equip carefully selected senior officers and civilians with the competencies required of strategic leaders of the U.S. Armed Forces.
The Eisenhower National Security Series, established in 1969, is a communication and outreach program within the U.S. Army War College. The Eisenhower Series encourages dialogue on national security issues and other public policy issues between its students and the public. War College students are selected to take part based on their experience, interest and knowledge of national security issues.
Though the members will address government policies, the views they express are their own, based on personal experience, research, academic study and reflection, and do not necessarily reflect those of the U.S. Army War College, the U.S. Army, the Department of Defense, the U.S. Government or any agency thereof.
