On the heels of the release of the 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review and the President's FY15 budget proposal, the defense community finds itself preparing for major changes. In describing the QDR, Secretary Hagel said the strategy represents "the tough choices we are making in a period of fiscal austerity." Those tough choices are detailed through reductions to force structure and unnecessary overhead, investing in readiness and reforming military compensation. 

On March 14, The Reserve Officers Association and the U.S. Army War College's Strategic Studies Institute will convene a panel of experts to review the QDR and offer their analysis. Panelists will analyze the 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review and its recommended strategic course in the areas of potential threats, challenges, and major trends, force shape and size, foreign partnerships, technology and innovation, and budget.

Panelists include:

  • Dr. John R. Deni, Strategic Studies Institute 
  • Mr. Ben FitzGerald, Center for a New American Security
  • Mr. Nate Freier, Strategic Studies Institute
  • Dr. Maren Leed, Center for Strategic and International Studies
  • Mr. Russell Rumbaugh, Stimson Center
