How to Win Without Fighting: Lessons from Army Civil Affairs

What went wrong in Afghanistan? Our August 22 VBC Happy Hour guests, US Army Civil Affairs veterans Gen. Chris Stockel, Col. Chris Holshek, and Col. Hughes Turner, would say we lost the war in Afghanistan not on the battlefield, but in the more complex realm of culture, society, politics, economics, and religion–Civil Affairs. Now, as we confront a new global environment of strategic competition with China, Russia, Iran, and other regional powers, will we make the same mistakes? Join us for this wide-ranging and important conversation. Sponsored by D&D Auto Salvage and Tobacco Free Adagio Health.  Simulcast to Facebook and YouTube.
