Today’s Questions About Tomorrow’s Force

Join the FiscalNote Executive Institute April 14 from 8:30-9:30 a.m. ET for a conversation on national security featuring General (ret.) Stan McChrystal, Founder and CEO of The McChrystal Group and former U.S. Army Commanding General of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) and Commander of International Security Forces AFG, and CQ Roll Call’s senior writer John M. Donnelly, who specializes in defense.

McChrystal, leveraging his considerable experience in uniform and in the private sector, will discuss pressing issues confronting the Defense Department today and in the years ahead. The discussion will cover:

  • How to keep extremists out of the military while making the armed services as inclusive and diverse as possible
  • What are the principal national security challenges for the Biden administration: from Afghanistan to China to non-military threats such as pandemics and climate change?
  • How might the military adapt to best prepare for a fast-approaching but largely unpredictable future—from force structure to weapons to personnel policies
