We held a DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable on Wednesday, Nov. 16, with U.S. Maj. Gen. Michael A. Keltz, Director, J-5, Strategic Planning and Policy, who discussed the recent 14th annual Chiefs of Defense Conference (CHOD).
This engagement brought together senior military leaders from nations in the Asia-Pacific region to discuss mutual security challenges, improve relationships and foster security cooperation. The roundtable also covered ways the U.S. Pacific Command is partnering with more than 36 nations in areas of mutual interest, such as humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, military-to-military training, building the U.S.-India strategic partnership and countering transnational threats.
Joining us on the call were Chuck Simmins, of America’s North Shore Journal; Walter Pincus, of the Washington Post; Gail Harris, of the Foreign Policy Blog; John Doyle, of 4GWar; Titus Ledbetter, of Inside the Air Force; Megan Eckstein, of Inside the Navy; William Wan, of the Washington Post; Charley Keyes, of CNN; and Kyle Mizokami.
