|This event provides a forum in which distinguished speakers may discuss
their views on national security related issues, an extended opportunity
for a free and candid dialogue on these issues, and it enables the US
Army War College students to better understand the society they serve.
The invited guests are a select group of representatives from academia,
the media, government, business, and other prominent organizations, such
as Rotary. By design, they represent a cross section of experience,
contemporary interests, and views. Many of the guests have no direct
affiliation with the national security community. Each is invited as a
representative of their organization and its culture, someone deeply
concerned with the well being of the nation, and as a person whose
experience, knowledge, and interests will enable him or her to
contribute to seminar group discussions.
