Army War College panel questions national security, military issues

Loyola press release - April 4, 2011

The U.S. Army War College‘s Eisenhower Series College Program will host a free panel discussion on the Loyola University New Orleans campus concerning current national security and military issues as well as government policies. The program will be held Thursday, April 7, from 3:30-7 p.m. in the College of Law, Room 405, 526 Pine St. A reception will follow in the Broadway Activities Center.

Topics for discussion include:

  • Should the U.S. engage in nation building and when should we commit troops in failing states?
  • Police mentor missions/ARNG role in training Afghanistan Police Forces?
  • Do we still need nuclear weapons?
  • The All-Volunteer Force
  • Is it time to reform NATO?

Panel members will also discuss current social issues and their impact on America's armed forces. While the speakers address government policies, they do not necessarily support the government’s position, and are free to offer their personal opinions.

The Eisenhower Series College Program was established in 1969 as an Army War College academic outreach program. It encourages dialogue on national security and other public policy issues between students of the Army's senior educational institution and the public at colleges and universities throughout the United States.

The program consists of a team of Army War College students and a faculty moderator. Students are selected for their experience, education, speaking ability and interest in national security issues. Team members participate in constructive, candid exchanges on current national security and military issues.
