Nunn School Prof Speaks on “Strategy, Technology, and the Future of US Ground Forces”
Kicking off the Fall 2013 Colloquia Series, Nunn School Assistant Prof Margaret E. Kosal spoke on Tuesday, 27 August. She shared some of her recent experiences and observations from her years serving as an advisor to the Chief of Staff of the US Army (CSA) as part of his inaugural Strategic Studies Group (SSG) in Washington DC.
As part of her experience with the Army, she led research, analysis, and development of new strategic concepts for design and employment of US ground forces and integration across the joint, interagency, inter-governmental and multi-national environments focusing on challenges for 10-25 years in the future. The SSG works exclusively for the CSA, General Ray Odierno, and conducts independent research and analysis to generate strategic and operational concepts for land forces. She was also involved in advising on policy and capabilities related to responding to current threats, including counter-WMD operations.
