The Commandant of the U.S. Army War College cordially invites you to join this critical conversation at the U.S. Army War Collegeâ€™s XXII Annual Strategy Conference to be held at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania from April 5-7, 2011. Join over 20 leading experts, the U.S. Army War College Class of 2011, and 200 other strategists, academics, journalists, government officials, business leaders, and other members of the public as they examine and debate the critical relationship between the U.S. military and the American society. The conference will include panels discussing the changing role of the military; the possible divergence of the cultural perspectives of the U.S. military and American society in general; and the potential impact such cultural divergence could have on various groups, including those representing both the profession and the larger society--such as military families and veterans.
